  • Considerable work has led many to conclude that interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) are the pacemaker cells of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These cells form electrically coupled networks within the pacemaker regions of the GI tract, and ICC are electrically coupled to smooth muscle cells. ICC express unique ion channels that periodically produce inward (pacemaker) currents. Recent work has suggested that the inward current is produced by a calcium (Ca2+)-regulated, nonselective cation… CONTINUE READING
