Physiology of obliquely striated muscle fibres within Grillotia erinaceus metacestodes (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha)



Physiology of obliquely striated muscle fibres within Grillotia erinaceus metacestodes (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha)



Parasitology, 1042: 337-346



The tentacular bulb of G. erinaceus metacestodes consists of obliquely striated muscle fibres with obvious motor end-plates. In this study isometric tension recordings and intracellular microelectrodes were used to record mechanical and electrical activity from single isolated bulbs. Bulbs were mechanically quiescent and displayed resting membrane potentials (RMP) in the region of -49 to -64 mV with a mean RMP of -56 mV (n = 60).
