What Are the Types of Muscle Tissue and What Characteristics Make Each Type Unique?
There are three different types of muscle found in animals, depending on their use. While these muscles differ slightly, they function in a similar way.
Muscles are composed of about 75 per cent water, 20 per cent protein, and about 5 per cent is made up of carbohydrates, lipids, inorganic salts, and nonprotein nitrogenous compounds. The composition does vary in the different muscles.
Nearly all movement in the body is the result of muscle contraction.
