epimysium function

facia; covers outer surface of all skeletal muscles

epimysium composition

collagenous tissue

epimysium continuous with tendons at one end of a muscle (TRUE OR FALSE)

FALSE: epimysium continuous with tendons at BOTH ends of a muscle

epimysium gives rise to...

perimysium; portion of epimysium extend internally into muscle

perimysium composition

white fibrous connective tissue sheath

perimysium function

surrounds a group of muscle fibers in a muscle


group of muscle fibers surrounded by perimysium

perimysium gives rise to...

endomysium; portions of perimysium extend internally into a fasciculus

endomysium composition

fine strands of collagenous tissue (derived from perimysium)

endomysium function

enters a fasciculus and surrounds sarcolemma (muscle cell membrane) of individual cells
