1. Calcium metabolism was investigated in the electric organ of Torpedo at rest and during synaptic activity. When the tissue was incubated in high calcium concentrations, complete exchange was obtained between cellular calcium and that of the external medium. In the presence of low concentrations, the tissue retained its calcium which, in this case, was poorly exchanged. 2. Stimulation of the nerves to the electric organ provoked a net increase in cellular calcium and an acceleration of its… CONTINUE READING
