Isolated Necturus proximal tubules were split to expose the apical membrane surface for patch clamping. When both pipette and bath solutions contained only Ca, N-methyl-D-glucamine, and methanesulfonate, inwardly directed Ca currents were observed through a stretch-activated (SA) cation channel with conductance of 18 +/- 1 pS (n = 19). The SA cation channel exhibited little discrimination among Na, K, and Ca but was at least nine times more selective for cations than anions. The channel was not… CONTINUE READING
