The shellfish poison maitotoxin causes the irreversible opening of nonselective cation channels in mouse L cell fibroblasts, consistent with the action of this toxin in other cell types and the previously demonstrated existence of 28-pS voltage-insensitive nonselected cation channels that are activated by platelet-derived growth factor in these cells. Toxin-induced opening of these nonselective cation channels led to increases of intracellular calcium and secondary activation of calcium… CONTINUE READING
