Apparent block of K+ currents in mouse motor nerve terminals by tetrodotoxin, mu-conotoxin and reduced external sodium.


1. In mouse triangularis sterni nerve-muscle preparations, reduced extracellular Na+ concentrations and low concentrations of the Na+ channel blocking toxins tetrodotoxin (TTX, 18-36 nM) and mu-conotoxin GIIIB (0.4-2.0 microM) selectively decreased the amplitude of the component of perineural waveforms associated with nerve terminal K+ currents, without… (More)
