Membrane potential of rat ventricular myocytes responds to axial stretch in phase, amplitude and speed-dependent manners.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To elucidate the interdependence between the mechanical state of the myocardium and its electrical activity, previous studies have been performed at the cellular level. However, the information to date has been limited by the technical difficulties associated with stretching single myocytes. METHODS We solved this problem by combining two… (More)
