Background: Arachidonic acid is a second messenger that has been implicated in several pathological conditions in nervous tissues. The present study was carried out to determine whether the second messenger arachidonic acid modulates currents through voltage-gated Ca2+ channels in freshly isolated Müller glial cells. Methods: Whole-cell voltage-clamp recordings were made in human Müller cells to investigate Ba2+ and Na+ currents through high-voltage-activated (HVA) channels, and in rabbit M… CONTINUE READING
