Freeze-fracture Studies of Frog

Abstract

The freeze-fracturing technique was used to characterize the junctional devices involved in the electrical coupling of frog atrial fibres. These fibres are connected by a type of junction which can be interpreted as a morphological variant of the ' gap junction' or ' nexus'. The most characteristic features are rows of 9-nm junctional particles forming… (More)
