Examination of the subsarcolemmal tubular system of mammalian skeletal muscle fibers.


A subsarcolemmal tubular system network (SSTN) has been detected in skeletal muscle fibers by confocal imaging after the removal of the sarcolemma. Here we confirm the existence and resolve the fine architecture and the localization of the SSTN at an unprecedented level of detail by examining extracellularly applied tubular system markers in skeletal muscle… (More)
