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)
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)
A decrease in resting MP, increase in the input resistance, appearance of anode breakdown APs, and extrajunctional acetylcholine sensitivity following denervation were revealed in the rat diaphragm muscle fibres. Addition of 1 X 10(-4) M furosemide to the culture medium reduced the degree of post-denervation muscle membrane depolarization and of(More)
The effect of norepinephrine, histamine, serotonin and potassium chloride on electrogenesis and contraction was studied on innervated and denervated smooth muscles of cat's nictitating membrane. Denervated smooth muscles generate slow depolarizing potentials with the APs corresponding to tonic and phasic contractions, resp. Tonic contractions occur with no(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)
