The effects of external anions (SCN−, NO 3 − , I−, Br−, F−, glutamate, and aspartate) on gating of Ca2+-dependent Cl− channels from rat parotid acinar cells were studied using the whole-cell configuration of the patch-clamp technique. Shifts in the reversal potential of the current induced by replacement of external Cl− with foreign anions, gave the(More)
