a developing skeletal muscle fiber with a centrally located nucleus. adj., adj myotu´bular.

my·o·tube

(mī'ō-tūb),
A skeletal muscle fiber formed by the fusion of myoblasts during a developmental stage; a few myofibrils occur at the periphery, and the central core is occupied by nuclei and sarcoplasm so that the fiber has a tubular appearance.

myotube

[mi′oto̅o̅b]
a developing muscle cell or fiber with a centrally-located nucleus.
