Membrane cable properties of skeletal muscle fibers of dystrophic mice (Rej-129) and their littermate controls were examined using a conventional two-microelectrode recording technique. Fibers from dystrophic mice had a decreased membrane resistivity (Rm) compared with those from normal mice (517 +/- 27 vs 642 +/- 34 omega - cm2), while the internal resistivities (Ri) did not differ significantly. The increase in membrane specific conductance was due to an increased Cl- conductance (gCl) (2304… CONTINUE READING
