A recording chamber for monitoring the electrophysiological properties of the isolated heart of adult Drosophila melanogaster has been developed. Spontaneously generated field potentials of constant amplitude can be recorded for 6–8 h (n=14); in very few cases, records were maintained stable for over 10 h (n=4), and in some cases below 6 h (n=5). The chamber consists of the tip of a micropipette, which allows for monitoring the field potential generated by the spontaneously contracting heart… CONTINUE READING
