Antisense oligonucleotides against alpha1E reduce R-type calcium currents in cerebellar granule cells.


Many neurons of the central nervous system display multiple high voltage-activated Ca2+ currents, pharmacologically classified as L-, N-, P-, Q-, and R-type. Of these current types, the R-type is the least understood. The leading candidate for the molecular correlate of R-type currents in cerebellar granule cells is the alpha1E subunit, which yields Ca2… (More)
