Calcium Channel Current in Rat Dental Pulp Cells


Voltage-gated Ca2+ currents in early-passage rat dental pulp cells were studied using whole-cell patch-clamp techniques. With Ba2+ as the charge carrier, two prominent inwardly-directed currents, I f and I s , were identified in these cells that could be distinguished on the basis of both kinetics and pharmacology. I f was activated by membrane… (More)
