Abstract: Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) generate electrical slow waves, which are required for normal gastrointestinal motility. The mechanisms for generation of normal pacemaking are not fully understood. Normal gastrointestinal contractility and electrical slow wave activity depend on the presence of extracellular HCO3-. Previous transcriptional analysis identified enrichment of mRNA encoding the electrogenic Na+/HCO3- cotransporter (NBCe1) gene (Slc4a4) in pacemaker myenteric ICC in mouse small intestine. We aim…
