In vitro motility of non-pregnant rat uterine horns: I. Physiological aspects.

ABSTRACT
The in vitro spontaneous mechanical and electrical activity of the non-pregnant rat uterine horn was investigated. The isometric isovolumic preparation was used to obtain records of endoluminal pressure, axial force, and extracellular electrical activity. The morphology of the horn was photographed. Detailed analysis of the successive electrical and mechanical events during a single contraction showed a preparatory phase involving the longitudinal muscle layer, followed by a stronger contractile event involving both longitudinal and circular layers. Moreover, the mechanical and the fast electrical activity were modulated by the slow electrical activity of the horn. The spontaneous contraction of the segment appeared to be due to the activation of separate regions of the horn (an ovarian and acervical region), more than to the propagation of an excitatory action.
