The effects of gadolinium, a stretch-sensitive channel blocker, on diaphragm muscle.
Stretch-activated channels (SAC) have been identified in many cell types including striated muscles. In diaphragm muscle, the influence of SAC on the length-active tension relationship remainsExpand

Sensitivity to H, Li and Mg ions of the slow inward sodium current in frog atrial fibres.
Abstract Membrane currents have beenmeasured in frog atrial fibres under voltage clamp conditions (double sucrose gap method); the effects on these currents of (i) an increase in [H]o, (ii) theExpand

Does crude venom of the stonefish (Synanceia verrucosa) activate beta-adrenoceptors in the frog heart muscle?
Venom isolated from the stonefish Synanceia verrucosa was assayed in concentrations of 0.07 and 5.7 micrograms/ml on frog atrial fibres and myocytes. Venom, less than 2.9 micrograms/ml,Expand
