1. Strontium can replace calcium in a number of physiological and biochemical processes. The effects of Sr2+ were investigated in enzymatically isolated ventricular myocytes of the guinea-pig. Action potentials and membrane currents were measured with the patch-clamp technique used in the whole-cell recording configuration. Mechanical activity was assessed… CONTINUE READING
