The time course of calcium-activated chloride “tail” currents (I tail) in single cells of the rabbit portal vein was studied. These currents were activated by the influx of calcium through voltage-dependent calcium channels (VDCCs). At −50 mV, I tail decayed exponentially with a time constant (τ) of 80–100 ms that was independent of amplitude and was similar to the τ of the decay of spontaneous transient inward currents (STICs; calcium-activated chloride currents). The decays of the STIC and I… CONTINUE READING
