The mechanism(s) of the decay of slow calcium current (ICa) in cut twitch skeletal muscle fibers of the frog were studied in voltage-clamp experiments using the double vaseline-gap technique. ICa decay followed a single exponential in 10 mM external Ca2+ and 20 mM internal EGTA solutions in all pulse protocols tested: single depolarizing pulses (activation protocol), two pulses (inactivation protocol), and during a long pulse preceded by a short prepulse (400 ms) to 80 mV (tail protocol).
