Electrophysiological properties of neurones in cultures from postnatal rat dentate gyrus

Electrophysiological properties of neurofilament-positive neurones in dissociated cell cultures were prepared at postnatal days 4–5 from rat dentate gyrus and studied using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. These cells expressed a fast-inactivating, 0.5 μM tetrodotoxin-sensitive Na+ current; a high-voltage-activated (HVA) Ca2+ current, which was 30 μM… CONTINUE READING
