A voltage-dependent and calcium-permeable ion channel in fused presynaptic terminals of Torpedo.

1. We used a preparation of fused presynaptic nerve terminals of Torpedo electromotor nerve and the patch-clamp technique for characterization of single ion channels. We report here of a large, nonselective ion channel which is highly voltage dependent. 2. The slope conductance of the I-V relation was estimated by either direct measurement of the single… CONTINUE READING
