Metabolic oscillations in heart cells.


Oscillatory rhythms underlie biological processes as diverse and fundamental as neuronal firing, secretion, and muscle contraction. We have detected periodic changes in membrane ionic current driven by intrinsic oscillations of energy metabolism in guinea pig heart cells. Withdrawal of exogenous substrates initiated oscillatory activation of ATP-sensitive… (More)
