Cardiac Muscle Histology

  • Primate - Alizarin blue
  • Red Blood Cells (orange cells) Cardiac Muscle Cells (blue)
  • low magnification - find where cardiac muscle cells are cut longitudinally.
  • high magnification- see striations and the large nuclei of the cardiac muscle cells.
  • intercalated discs which connect the individual muscle cells and permit the conduction of electrical impulses between the cells.
    • individual cardiac muscle cells have fine, dark blue lines which seem to cross the fibres.
