An isolation technique was developed for single cells from the ferret aorta, which resulted in the isolation of long (87±27 μm; x±SD, n=62), relaxed, pharmacologically active smooth muscle cells. These cells were attached to microtools, one of which was connected to a force transducer. Force in maximally phenylephrine-stimulated contractions of the intact… CONTINUE READING
