We investigated the involvement of muscle tone and circular muscle (CM) contraction in peristalsis in isolated guinea-pig small intestine. A segment of jejunum (approximately 13 cm) was mounted into a three chambered partitioned bath. Peristaltic waves were initiated in the oral chamber either by: (1) infusing fluid into the oral end of the jejunum; the ejected fluid was diverted via a cannula from reaching the intermediate and anal chambers, or by (2) intraluminal balloon distension of the… CONTINUE READING
