To clarify the physiological significance of the g-s connection (intimate apposition of the glomus cell to the smooth muscle) in the Xenopus carotid labyrinth, experiments were carried out morphologically and physiologically. Results obtained are as follows. Efferent electrical stimulation of the glossopharyngeal nerve resulted in concentrating dense-cored vesicles on the peripheral region of the glomus cell, and a decrease of vesicles as a whole. In the carotid labyrinth perfused artificially… CONTINUE READING
