Q

Heart muscle cells would tend to separate without ________

A. stroma

B. intercalted discs

C. flana

D. myofilaments

A

Answer: B. intercalted discs

Intercalated discs are structural formations located just between the myocardial cells of the heart. They help in bonding cardiac muscle cells together and also for transmitting sensory signals between cells. These structures are required for a well-coordinated contraction of muscles in the heart. Intercalated cells are the major reasons heart muscle cells will not separate.
