The muscularis propria of the rat oesophagus is entirely made up of striated muscle fibres. All fibres are of the same histochemical type, which is characterized by high activity of actomyosin ATPase, medium activity of oxidative enzymes and relatively strong reaction for phosphorylase. Prolonged stimulation (10 Hz, 30 min) of the vagus nerves causes depletion of the glycogen content of the oesophageal muscle fibres. This stimulation effect can be visualized by means of the PAS technique as… CONTINUE READING
