This review will focus on the pacemaker mechanisms underlying gastrointestinal autonomic rhythmicity in an attempt to elucidate the differences and similarities between the pacemaker mechanisms in the heart and gut. Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) form networks that are widely distributed within the submucosal (ICC-SM), intra-muscular (ICC-IM, ICC-DMP) and inter-muscular layers (ICC-MY) of the gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus to the internal anal sphincter. The ICC generate… CONTINUE READING
