Ca-dependent slow action potentials in human skeletal muscle.

Slow Ca-action potentials (CaAP) were studied in normal human skeletal muscle fibers obtained during surgery (fibers with both ends cut). Control studies also were carried out with intact as well as cut rat skeletal muscle fibers. Experiments were performed in hypertonic Cl-free saline with 10 or 84 mM Ca and K-channel blockers; muscles were preincubated in… CONTINUE READING
