transverse tubules
structures in myofibers which run transversely to the long axis of the myofibrils in skeletal and cardiac muscle. They are filled with basal lamina material and are part of the communication system of muscle fibers and provide a means for the passage of action potentials into the depths of the fibers. The tubules are invaginations of the sarcolemma.
