Question

Why smooth muscles are called unstriated muscles?


Solution

Non-striated muscles are called so because these types of muscles do not show light and dark bands or striations when stained as shown by striated muscles.

Non striated muscles are also called smooth muscles or involuntary muscles. The movement of these muscles is not under our control. The cells are long with pointed ends and uninucleate. For example- muscles of heart, iris, etc.
