1. Previous work has shown that a frog sartorius muscle consists of parallel cells running all the way from one end of the muscle to the other and that amputation of one end of the muscle is not followed by regeneration of a new cell membrane. If now only the cut end of the amputated muscle is exposed to a Ringer solution in which the solutes 42K and 22Na act as radioactive labels and the rest of the cell is suspended in air, we have what is described as an effectively membraneless open-ended… CONTINUE READING
