1. New term for VAO:
"muscle"
synonym: muscle organ
is_a: organ
part_of: muscular system
has_part: muscle tissue

WD: I'm proposing that "muscle" is the primary label because it's in common usage compared to "muscle organ".

Equivalent terms in other ontologies:

MA:0000015 “muscle organ”
part_of: muscular system

FMA:5022 "muscle organ"
def: “Nonparenchymatous organ that primarily consists of skeletal muscle tissue aggregated into macroscopic fasciculi by connective tissue” [FMA}
is_a: Nonparenchymatous organ

AAO:0011066 "muscle"
is_a: unclassified anatomical entity
[child: skeletal muscle]

ZFA:0005145, TAO:0005145 "muscle"
def: "Portion of tissue composed of contractile fibers." [ZFIN:curator]
is_a: portion of tissue
part_of: musculature system
[note: despite text definition, this term is used to classify 'muscle organs']

XAO:0000172 "muscle"
def: "A body tissue consisting of long cells that contract when stimulated and produce motion." [BTO:0000887]
subset: frequent_anatomy_items
xref: ZFA:0005145
is_a: XAO:0003040 ! portion of tissue
[note xref to ZFA - based on this, I think this is intended to be a 'muscle organ' rather than tissue]

part_of: muscular system
part_of: musculature (see request http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3386323&group_id=76834&atid=2257941\)
Proposed definition: Tissue that contains cells with contractile filaments that move past each other and change the size of the cell. [AAO]

AAO:0000306 "muscle tissue"
def: "One of the four types of tissue in traditional classifications. Tissue that contains cells with contractile filaments that move past each other and change the size of the cell. Muscle tissue also is separated into three distinct categories." [AAO:LAP]
is_a: portion of tissue

MA:0002437 "muscle tissue"
part_of muscular system

FMA 9641 "Portion of muscle tissue"
def: "Tissue which consists of muscle cells surrounded by a reticulum of collagen fibers or fine connective tissue [endomysium]. Examples: Smooth muscle, Cardiac muscle." []
