Multiple nuclei are present in the skeletal muscles. Give reason.

Dear student,
Skeletal muscle cells arise in embryo as uninucleated entities. Later the myoblasts cells fuse together and give rise to multinucleated muscle fiber therefore, have multiple nuclei . Moreover,to obtain sufficient mRNA in total per cell and mRNA that is in the right place for translation into protein, it is advantageous to be multinucleated.
