Influence of sympathetic innervation on the membrane electrical properties of neonatal rat cardiomyocytes in culture.


Co-cultures of rat ventricular myocytes and sympathetic neurons were established. Superior cervical ganglia and ventricles from newborn rats were enzymatically dissociated and plated in a culture dish. Experiments were done between the 3rd (when evidence of neuron-myocyte proximity arises) and the 5th day in culture (before the myocytes become confluent… (More)
