Gow, I. & Ellis, D. (1990) Effect of lithium on the intracellular potassium concentration in sheep heart Purkinje fibres., Experimental physiology, vol. 75, , pp. 427-430,
Simultaneous measurements were made of the intracellular activities of potassium and lithium in sheep heart Purkinje fibres using ion-sensitive microelectrodes. On exposure of the fibres to lithium, the intracellular activity of lithium rose, with an equivalent decrease in the level of intracellular potassium.
