Quantifying electrical interactions between cardiomyocytes and other cells in micropatterned cell pairs.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Micropatterning is a powerful technique to control cell shape and position on a culture substrate. In this chapter, we describe the method to reproducibly create large numbers of micropatterned heterotypic cell pairs with defined size, shape, and length of cell-cell contact. These cell pairs can be utilized in patch clamp recordings to quantify electrical interactions between cardiomyocytes and non-cardiomyocytes.
