The effects of changing temperature on the electrophysiology of isolated cardiac myocytes of the guinea pig and Richardson's ground squirrel were studied by patch-clamp techniques. In cells from both species, the resting membrane potential declined on cooling from 36 to 12 degrees C by approximately 6 mV. The duration of the plateau of the action potential in guinea pig cells increased monotonically on cooling. In contrast, the action potential of ground squirrel cells showed a biphasic… CONTINUE READING
