Growth cones were severed from their neurites in primary cultures ofHelix aspersa neurons. Following isolation, growth cones rolled up into 5–10-μm-diameter sheres, which remained attached to a poly-l-lysine or lectin-coated glass coverslip. Whole-cell-configuration patch-clamp recordings from isolated growth cones revealed inward calcium currents upon block of outward currents with internally perfused CsCl. Up to 50 μM tetrodotoxin did not affect this current. In 20-μm-diameter spheres, a peak… CONTINUE READING
