Characterization of a delayed rectifier potassium current in chicken growth plate chondrocytes.

Abstract

With the use of the whole cell arrangement of the patch-clamp technique, an outward-directed time-dependent potassium current was identified in cultured chicken growth plate chondrocytes. This delayed rectifier potassium current (IK) activated with a sigmoidal time course during voltage steps to potentials positive to -40 mV. The half-maximal voltage… (More)
