A modified Golgi method combined with stereoscopy has been used to demonstrate the three-dimensional architecture of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) and the T-system in human skeletal muscle. SR formed a continuous repeating network with a different structure dependent upon the sarcomere position. Intermyofibrillar SR contained three regions: 1) fenestrated collars overlying the M-band region, 2) terminal cisternae overlying the A-I region, and 3) a three-dimensional anastomosed tubular network… CONTINUE READING
