Summary

This protocol utilized a commercially available pressure myograph system to perform pressure myograph testing on the murine vagina and cervix. Utilizing media with and without calcium, the contributions of the smooth muscle cells (SMC) basal tone and passive extracellular matrix (ECM) were isolated for the organs under estimated physiological conditions.
