Cardiac muscle histology

Image of primate heart stained with Alizarin blue.

  • Red Blood Cells (orange cells) Cardiac Muscle Cells (blue)
  • Cardiac muscle cells are cut longitudinally.
  • At high magnification see both striations and the large nuclei of the cardiac muscle cells.
  • Follow the course of individual cardiac muscle cells and note fine, dark blue lines which seem to cross (traverse) the fibres.
  • These are the intercalated discs that connect the individual muscle cells and permit the conduction of electrical impulses between the cells.
