Two inward currents were observed in crayfish muscle membrane during depolarization steps by the method described by Adrian et al. (1970). Under voltage clamp conditions, hyperpolarization steps elicited a large current (leak current If), associated with an inward voltage dependent current. This inward current was inhibited by niflumic acid (NA), a drug(More)
Using the whole cell voltage-clamp technique and a C1 free and Na free Ba methane sulfonate solution, stage V and VI Xenopus oocytes demonstrated a Ba current (endogenous component) with a peak amplitude average of 6 nA (6 +/- 2 nA). When oocytes were injected with crustacean skeletal muscle mRNA, an additional component of IBa could be detected (exogenous(More)
Rates of calcium uptake by and calcium release from sarcoplasmic reticulum vesicles isolated from skeletal muscle of the crab seem to depend on membrane potential generated by potassium (K) and chloride (Cl) gradients. This does not appear to be due to an effect of the ions themselves since media of different ionic compositions leading to the same membrane(More)
Agents such as TEA+ or CS+ ions, these last ions instead of K+ ions in poor K extracellular solution, known to reduce or abolish the inwardly rectifying channel in many preparations produced no effect in crayfish muscle membrane By contrast, poor Cl extracellular solution (Cl- ions were replaced by CH3OSO3- ions) blocked the inward current activated by(More)
