1. Voltage-dependent K+ currents were recorded in cultured tumour-derived anterior pituitary cells of the rat (GH3 cells) with the patch clamp technique. An inward-rectifying current is described which is found to be carried by K+. 2. In isotonic KCl, whole-cell inward K+ currents were elicited by hyperpolarizing pulses from a holding potential of -40 mV… CONTINUE READING
