Introduction

This page describes smooth muscle histology. Development of smooth muscle, skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle can be found in other notes.

Smooth muscle is mesoderm in origin and contributes to many different tissues including the muscular wall of the gastrointestinal tract, artery walls, bladder wall, uterus, seminiferous tubules and ductus deferens.
