Postnatal developmental changes in the electrophysiological properties of cat right ventricular papillary muscles.

Cellular electrophysiological properties of cat right ventricular papillary muscles were studied during postnatal development using intracellular microelectrodes. Animals were studied in the neonatal period (less than 75 h of age), in infancy (16 to 18 days old) and in adult life (1.8 to 2.3 kg body weight). Resting membrane potential, action potential… CONTINUE READING
