The smooth muscle sphincter enveloping the terminal portion of the common bile duct in the opossum exhibits spontaneous electrical activity and simultaneous rhythmic contractions. The aim of our study was to define the influence of four gastrointestinal hormones on biliary sphincter electrical and mechanical activity. An array of five monopolar extracellular electrodes was placed along the opossum choledochal sphincteric smooth muscle and contiguous duodenum. A catheter in continuity with a… CONTINUE READING
