Chloride channels of the ClC family are important for the control of membrane excitability, cell volume regulation, and possibly transepithelial transport. Although lacking the typical voltage-sensor found in cation channels, gating of ClC channels is clearly voltage-dependent. For the prototype Torpedo channel ClC-0 (refs 11-15) we now show that channel(More)
Membrane hyperpolarization normally activates the slow gate of the Torpedo voltage-gated chloride channel (ClC-0). To elucidate the structural basis of this process, carboxy terminus truncation mutants and chimeras were constructed, expressed in Xenopus oocytes, and evaluated using a two-microelectrode voltage clamp.
