1. Single, giant, smooth muscle cells were isolated enzymatically from longitudinal muscle bundles in the ctenophoreMnemiopsis. The isolation procedure produced fragments of in situ cells and their lengths ranged from 100 μm to several millimeters. The cut ends of the fibers resealed readily and the input impedances of the isolated cells remained high. 2. Intracellular recordings were obtained from in situ fibers and used as a baseline to compare with data from isolated cells. In situ fibers… CONTINUE READING
