Potassium channels make up the largest family of voltage-activated channels and play a key role in maintenance of cell excitability and in transmission of information within the nervous system. The aim of this work was to find out the specific subtypes of voltage-activated potassium channels peculiar to GABAergic interneurons of rat hippocampal culture. It(More)
In co-culture of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and dorsal horn (DH) neurons we studied the long-term depression (LTD) caused by 5 sec(-1) low-frequency stimulation (LFS) of DRG neurons. Dual whole-cell patch clamp recording in the pairs of DRG and DH neurons was used. The monosynaptic AMPA-receptor mediated eEPSC initiated in DH neurons by LFS of DRG neurons(More)
We examined properties of chemical neurotransmission at the level of primary afferent inputs into spinal cord with the new easy-to-use in vitro model of contiguously-cultivated dissociated both the dorsal root ganglion neurons (DRG) and the dorsal horn spinal cord neurons (DHSC) from newborn rats. The results of our studies showed the presence of excitatory(More)
Electrophysiological properties of inhibitory (GABAergic) neurones were studied in dissociated hippocampal culture using simultaneous whole cell recordings from pairs of monosynaptically coupled neurons. Reliable identification of GABAergic neuron was performed by presence of monosynaptic inhibitory currents at postsynaptic cell in response to action(More)
Electrophysiological characteristics of hippocampal neurones cultured with Pro-Gly-Pro peptide were studied using glutamate excitotoxisity model (excitotoxic damage was induced by 100 mkM glutamate application during 5 min). It was found that negative changes in neurones cultured with 10 mcM Pro-Gly-Pro were less prominent if compared with control ones.(More)
Dynamic changes in the intracellular free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) were studied in hippocampal cultured neurons using fluorescent Ca(2+)-indicator dye Indo-1 and somatic whole-cell recordings. During the tetanus stimulation Ca(2+)-transient increased their amplitude up to a steady-state level during repetitive stimulation. We identified two groups of(More)
On rat retinal preparation in whole-cell mode retinal ganglion cells (RGC) tonic firing induced calcium signals were recorded and their modulation by Kv3 potassium channels was studied. RGC depolarization with 500 ms current steps caused tonic action potentials (AP) generation and development of calcium signals which amplitude depended quite linearly on(More)
Ionic currents responsible for excitability of retinal ganglion cells (RGC) freshly isolated from eyes of adult rats were studied. Kutward potassium currents in RGC represented by populations of slow inactivating and non-inactivating currents. Inward sodium currents were completely blocked by extracellular application of 0.25 mM TTX. Calcium conductance in(More)
On isolated retinal preparation from STZ-induced diabetic rats in whole-cell configuration the basic electrical properties of retinal ganglion cells (RGC) were studied. It was shown that on 8th week after STZ maximal depolarization-induced firing frequency is reduced and decay time constant of high-frequency stimulation-induced calcium signals is increased(More)
The rat superior cervical ganglion (SCG) neurones demonstrate responses on the threshold stimulation of the cervical sympathetic nerve, extrinsic (ECN) and intrinsic (ICN) carotid nerves. Both antidromic and synaptic responses were evoked by antidromic stimulation of ECN and ICN. The synaptic responses of each neuron differ by great variability amplitudes(More)
