The traditional notion that glial cells are permeable only to potassium has been revised. For example, glia from various parts of the nervous system have calcium-permeable ion channels. Since characterization of the calcium channels in glia is limited, the purpose of this study was to determine the molecular identity and examine the functional properties of a voltage-gated calcium channel expressed by Müller cells, the predominant glia of the retina. Whole-cell and perforated-patch recordings… CONTINUE READING
