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)
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)
