Role of interstitial cells of Cajal in the control of gastric motility

Hirst, George; Edwards, Frank


Most regions of the gastrointestinal tract generate spontaneous electrical and mechanical activity in the absence of stimulation. When electrical recordings are made from slow muscle cells lying in the gastrointestinal tract, a regular discharge of long lasting waves of depolarization, slow waves, is detected. It has recently become apparent that slow waves are generated by a specialized population of smooth muscle cells, known as interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC). ICC can be subdivided into at...[Show more]
