Measurement of intracellular chloride activity in theextensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscle of the rat using liquid ion-exchanger microelectrodes gave an apparent resting value of 10 to 11 mmol liter−1. If chloride ions were distributed passively across the muscle fiber membrane the predicted value would be 4 mmol liter−1. In experiments in which the bathing fluid was changed by (a) reduction of external chloride, or incubation at low external chloride followed by a return to normal… CONTINUE READING
