The effects of calcium current agonist BAY K 8644 on transmembrane potential of guinea pig papillary muscle (PM) and sheep Purkinje fibers (PF) were studied. The action potentials (AP) and contractions (C) were recorded. C both of PM and PF increased (two-four times) in response to BAY K 8644 (0.5-5 microM) addition. The AP duration of PM increased slightly(More)
