Although store-operated Ca(2+) influx has been well-studied in nonneuronal cells, an understanding of its nature in neurons remains poor. In the bag cell neurons of Aplysia californica, prior work has suggested that a Ca(2+) entry pathway can be activated by Ca(2+) store depletion. Using fura-based imaging of intracellular Ca(2+) in cultured bag cell(More)
Targeting signalling molecules to ion channels can expedite regulation and assure the proper transition of changes to excitability. In the bag cell neurons of Aplysia, single-channel studies of excised patches have revealed that protein kinase C (PKC) gates a non-selective cation channel through a close, physical association. This channel drives a prolonged(More)
