Activation of a nonspecific cation conductance by intracellular Ca2+ elevation in bursting pacemaker neurons of Helix pomatia.

Abstract

The pacemaker current of a bursting neuron of Helix pomatia was investigated using voltage-clamp and pressure-injection techniques. In the steady state the net membrane current was zero near threshold of the action potential at -45 mV. Negative to this potential the membrane current was inward and steady. During burst activity a long-lasting inward current… (More)
