Stannous chloride (SnCl2) facilitates the calcium (Ca) entry into the frog motor nerve terminals. To compare the mode of action of SnCl2 on the Ca channels in the mouse with that in the frog, we investigated the effects of SnCl2 on the inward Ca current at the nerve terminals. SnCl2 (0.1 mM) did not change the second positive component of the action potential (an outward potassium (K) current) at the terminal part of the nerve terminal. SnCl2 (0.1 mM) increased the amplitude of the prolonged… CONTINUE READING
