Intracellular recordings were made in juxtaglomerular granulated (JG) cells and in vascular smooth muscle (VSM) cells in afferent arterioles of hydronephrotic mouse kidneys. Both cell types did not differ in their passive and active electrical membrane properties; membrane potential was about -58 mV, input resistance exceeded 400 M omega, and JG as well as VSM cells showed spontaneous depolarizations resembling excitatory junction potentials and active responses observed in smooth muscle cells… CONTINUE READING
