A new dissection procedure for preparing Myxicola giant axons for observation under voltage clamp is described. Preparation time is generally 40-45 min. 65-70% of the preparations attempted may be brought through the entire procedure, including insertion of the long internal electrode, and support an initial action potential amplitude of 100 mv or greater. Mean values for axon diameter, resting membrane potential, action potential amplitude, maximum peak inward transient current, and resting… CONTINUE READING
