The configuration of the electrotonic potential and the action potential observed by the double sucrose-gap method was similar to that observed with a microelectrode inserted into a cell in the center pool between the gaps. In the taenia and the ureter, the evoked spike was larger in low Na or in Na-free (sucrose substitute) solution than in normal solution. However, the plateau component in the ureter was suppressed in the absence of Na. In Ca-free solution containing Mg (3-5 mM) and Na (137… CONTINUE READING
