Myotendinous junctions in the parietal muscle of the Atlantic hagfish (Myxine glutinosa, L.) and in the diaphragm of rat were studied with the electron microscope. The ends of muscle fibers posses deep tube-like invaginations and also finger-like processes. Terminal I-filaments of the myofibrils attach to the plasma membrane of the invaginations. Collagen fibrils of the tendon attach to the external aspect of the lamina densa. The lamina densa and also collagen fibrils continue into the… CONTINUE READING
