  • THE functions of the sarcolemma of skeletal muscle are still uncertain, because of our lack of knowledge of its structure and detailed distribution over the entire surface of the muscle cell. Most of our knowledge is derived from electron microscope investigations and the sarcolemma is regarded as a semi-permeable unit membrane about 100 Å thick, which directly encloses the contents of the cell. This membrane is probably bimolecular and lipoprotein in character, and similar to that which is… CONTINUE READING
