The properties of suburothelial myofibroblasts are described, and their possible role in shaping sensory responses from the bladder wall are discussed. Suburothelial myofibroblasts consist of long spindle-shaped cells that form a distinctive layer below the urothelium and are connected to each other through connexin 43 gap junctions. Isolated cells from guinea pig or human bladders display spontaneous fluctuations of membrane potential and intracellular [Ca(2+)], and respond in a similar way to… CONTINUE READING
