Ca(2+)-dependent activation of Cl(-) currents in Xenopus oocytes is modulated by voltage.

Ca(2+)-activated Cl(-) currents (I(Cl,Ca)) were examined using fluorescence confocal microscopy to monitor intracellular Ca(2+) liberation evoked by flash photolysis of caged inositol 1,4, 5-trisphosphate (InsP(3)) in voltage-clamped Xenopus oocytes. Currents at +40 mV exhibited a steep dependence on InsP(3) concentration ([InsP(3)]), whereas currents at… (More)
