The properties of the tail current associated with the delayed rectifier K+ current (IK) in isolated rat pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells were examined using the whole cell patch clamp technique. The tail currents observed upon repolarization to -60 mV after brief (e.g., 20 ms) or small (i.e. to potentials negative of 0 mV) depolarizations were… CONTINUE READING
