Extent of increase in intracellular calcium concentration in electrically stimulated chick embryo heart cells does not depend on resting intracellular calcium concentration.


Using Fura-2 digital imaging microscopy, we found two cell populations in chick embryo heart with different resting intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i). Electrical stimulation of the cells led to the same increase in [Ca2+]i in both cell types, e.g. from 118 +/- 24 nM up to a peak of 243 +/- 67 nM (SD, n = 18) and from 44 +/- 15 nM up to a peak of… (More)
