The presence of internal Mg-ATP produced a number of changes in the K conductance of perfused giant axons of squid. For holding potentials between -40 and -50 mV, steady-state K conductance increased for depolarizations to potentials more positive than approximately -15 mV and decreased for smaller depolarizations. The voltage dependencies of both(More)
The costs associated with drilling and completing wells are a major factor in determining the economic feasibility of producing energy from geothermal resources. In EGS power plants, estimates place drilling costs as accounting for 42%-95% of total power plant costs (Tester et al., 1994) depending on the quality of the EGS reservoir. An earlier correlation(More)
Recent national focus on the value of increasing US supplies of indigenous renewable energy underscores the need for re-evaluating all alternatives, particularly those that are large and well distributed nationally. A panel was assembled in September 2005 to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of geothermal becoming a major supplier of primary(More)

The publication of “The Future of Geothermal Energy” in the fall of 2006 brought renewed interest and focus to work on Engineered Geothermal Systems (EGS) in the U.S. The magnitude of the resource, coupled with its ability to provide baseload electric power and recent technical advances achieved in field experiments internationally, have increased awareness(More)
Functional characterization of membrane channels by patch clamp techniques has revealed great diversity of transmitter or Voltage gated channels in native membranes. Concomitantly recombinant DNA techniques revealed a plethora of genes encoding channel subunits. Thus functional diversity within a particular class of channels may be generated by families of(More)
