Evidence of electrical and dye coupling between oligodendrocytes and astrocytes was sought in cultures of mouse spinal cord. Cell identity was verified using cell specific antigenic markers. In most experiments current was injected into oligodendrocytes while recording voltage in nearby astrocytes. Nine of 17 oligodendrocyte-astrocyte cell pairs showed weak electrical coupling; the average estimated coupling ratio was 0.03 +/- 0.06 (cf. 0.11 for oligodendrocyte-oligodendrocyte and 0.44 for… CONTINUE READING
