Direct and indirect innervation of smooth muscle cells of rat stomach, with special reference to the interstitial cells of Cajal

Abstract

Interstitial cells of Cajal in the circular (ICC-CM) and longitudinal (ICC-LM) muscle layer of the rat gastric antrum and their innervation were studied ultrastructurally. Both ICC-CM and ICC-LM are characterized by many mitochondria, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum, caveolae, and formation of gap junctions with each other and with muscle cells… (More)
