Effects of acetaldehyde on electrical and mechanical activities of guinea-pig taenia coli.

Abstract

The effect of acetaldehyde on the electrical and mechanical activities of the isolated segment of taenia coli from guinea-pigs has been studied using a sucrose-gap method. Application of acetaldehyde produces relaxation of the muscle, which is accompanied by reduction or cessation of spontaneous spike activity and hyperpolarization of the membrane. The… (More)
