Mouse Smooth Muscle Tissue - 40x

Mouse Smooth Muscle Tissue

This digital image depicts a three-dimensional reconstruction of mouse smooth muscle tissue imaged at 40x. Unlike cardiac and skeletal muscle, smooth muscle does not express the protein troponin. Instead, among the major proteins expressed by this type of muscle are caldesmon, calmodulin, and calponin.
