Protein phosphorylation by protein kinase C (PKC) has recently been shown to be a key event in the induction of the slow inward Na current observed during sustained depolarization of the Xenopus oocyte membrane. The present work investigates the possible pathways leading to PKC activation. PKC is activated by a series of phospholipid metabolites, such as(More)
The slow inward Na current observed during sustained depolarization of the Xenopus oocyte membrane is due to a complex mechanism described as the induction of the channels. The present work investigates the role of protein phosphorylation in Na channel function. Injection of alkaline phosphatase in the oocytes decreased inward current. Therefore, the(More)
