Bimodal gating of the Na+ channel.

Abstract

Inactivation of voltage-gated ion channels, whether they are selective for Na+, K+ or Ca2+, probably never involves their total closure, and some flow of ion current persists if large enough test pulses are applied. Incomplete inactivation was first reported for the Na+ channels of the squid giant axon, but has since been observed in other types of… (More)
