Effect of lanthanum on voltage-dependent gating of a cloned mammalian neuronal potassium channel.

Abstract

The effect of the trivalent cation lanthanum (La3+) on voltage-dependent gating of a cloned mammalian neuronal Kv1.1 potassium channel was studied under whole-cell voltage-clamp conditions in oocytes of Xenopus laevis. La3+ (100 microM) was found to decrease the potassium currents at all test potentials and to shift the midpoint of the fraction open… (More)
