The purpose of this research was to develop a technique for rapid measurement of O(2) uptake (Vo(2)) kinetics in single isolated skeletal muscle cells. Previous attempts to measure single cell Vo(2) have utilized polarographic-style electrodes, thereby mandating large fluid volumes and relatively poor sensitivity. Thus our laboratory has developed an approximately 100-microl, well-stirred chamber for the measurement of Vo(2) in isolated Xenopus laevis myocytes using a phosphorescence quenching… CONTINUE READING
