Electrical rhythmicity in the renal pelvis provides the fundamental drive for the peristaltic contractions that propel urine from the kidney to bladder for storage until micturition. Although atypical smooth muscles (ASMCs) within the most proximal regions of the renal pelvis have long been implicated as the pacemaker cells, the presence of a sparsely distributed population of rhythmically active Kit-positive interstitial cells of Cajal-like cells (ICC-LCs) have confounded our understanding of… CONTINUE READING
