The changes of the muscle fibres volume and resting membrane potential (RMP) were studied following treatment with hypertonic medium and furosemide. The volume changes in hypertonic medium began with cell shrinkage and later have been followed by the volume increase up to normal level during 30-40 minutes. At the same time the medium hypertonicity caused… (More)
Tetrodotoxin resistant sodium channels have been shown to operate in frog muscle membrane, which are responsible for local action potentials. These channels are located mainly in synaptic regions, and their distribution on the membrane is controlled by neurotrophic factors.
The volume change of the muscle fibres in the hypertonic medium begins with cell shrinkage. Later the cell volume increases up to the normal level because of the furosemide-sensitive CL(-)-influx activation. The property of the Cl(-)-influx to be activated in the hypertonic medium is abolished after denervation. That causes a loss of the ability of muscle… (More)
Standard microelectrode techniques were used to evaluate the effect of d-tubocurarine chloride on membrane potential of junctional and extrajunctional areas of muscle fibers in a potassium-free Ringer solution. The experiments were made on frogs after inactivation of acetylcholinesterase. d-Tubocurarine chloride hyperpolarized the membrane of muscle fibers… (More)
Hydrocortisone (1.10(-7)-1.10(-5) M/l) in vitro experiments on frog's muscle in conditions of preliminary curarization increases dose-dependently the quantum content of e.p.p., affecting neither membrane potential, nor input resistance, nor sensitivity to acetylcholine of the membrane of m. sartorius fibers. Hydrocortisone in conditions of magnesium block… (More)
After experimental cease of neurotrophic control of skeletal muscle by denervation no changes in myosin ATP-ase histochemistry and immunohistochemical profile in slow (m. soleus) muscle of guinea pig were found. All muscle fibers in intact muscle fibers). However after colchicine blockade of axoplasmic transport in this slow muscle some muscle fibers… (More)
