We have studied the regulation of intracellular pH (pHi), and HCO3(-)-dependent membrane currents in cultured astrocytes from neonatal rat cerebellum, using the fluorescent pH-sensitive dye 2,7'-bis(carboxyethyl)-5,6-carboxyfluorescein (BCECF) and the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. The steady-state pHi was 6.96 in both nominally CO2/HCO3(-)-free,(More)
The effect of different neurotransmitters on the intracellular pH (pHi) and intracellular calcium (Ca2+i) was studied in cultured astrocytes from neonatal rat cerebellum, using the fluorescent dyes 2,7'-bis(carboxyethyl)-5,6-carboxy-fluorescein (BCECF) and Fura-2. Application of glutamate or kainate (100 microM) in a HEPES-buffered, CO2/HCO3(-) -free saline(More)
