Bioelectric memory: modeling resting potential bistability in amphibian embryos and mammalian cells.Levin, Michael.
Background: Bioelectric gradients among all cells, not just within excitable nerve and muscle, play instructive roles in developmental and regenerative pattern formation. Plasma membrane resting potential gradients regulate cell behaviors by regulating downstream transcriptional and epigenetic events. Unlike neurons, which fire rapidly and typically return to the same polarized state, developmenta... read more
