Definition:Muscle tissue which is unstriated, composed primarily of smooth muscle fibers surrounded by a reticulum of collagen and elastic fibers. Smooth muscle differs from striated muscle in the much higher actin/myosin ratio, the absence of conspicuous sarcomeres and the ability to contract to a much smaller fraction of its resting length[GO].
Synonyms:exact_synonym: involuntary muscle;   non-striated muscle;   smooth muscle;   textus muscularis nonstriatus
 narrow_synonym: visceral muscle;   visceral muscle tissue
 related_synonym: textus muscularis levis; textus muscularis nonstriatus
