The effect of NH4+ on synaptosomal membrane potential was examined using rat brains. The membrane potential was measured by the rhodamine 6G fluorescence method. Both NH4+ diffusion potential (NH4+-potential) and K+ diffusion potential (K+-potential) were observed in the synaptosomes. Upon replacement of medium Cl- with SCN-, both K+- and NH4+-potentials… CONTINUE READING
