Differential effects of ATP on tetrodotoxin-sensitive (TTX-S) and tetrodotoxin-resistant (TTX-R) sodium currents in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons were studied using the whole-cell variation of path-clamp technique. Currents were evoked by step depolarizations to 0 mV from a holding potential of -80 mV. ATP suppressed TTX-S sodium currents while it… CONTINUE READING
