Electrical activity of the proventriculus of the polychaete worm Syllis spongiphila.

Abstract

The straited myoepithelial cells of the proventriculus of Syllis spongiphila are composed of only one or two sarcomeres that may reach 40 mum in length. Experiments were performed to study some of their electrophysiological properties and their synaptic control. The mean resting potentials recorded in two different bathing media were 59-1 +/- 5-5 mV (S.D… (More)
