Single inward rectifier K+ channels were studied in Xenopus laevis embryonic myocytes. We have characterized in detail the channel which is most frequently observed (Kir) although we routinely observe three other smaller current levels with the properties of inward rectifier K+ channels (Kir(0.3), Kir(0.5) and Kir(0.7)). For Kir, slope conductances of(More)
1. Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are involved in the regulation of many aspects of muscle development. This study investigated their role in regulating voltage-dependent K+ currents in differentiating Xenopus laevis myocytes. Both FGF-1 and FGF-2 are expressed by developing muscle cells, so their actions were compared. Experiments were performed on(More)
