The mean transmembrane potential of cultured osteoblastlike cells isolated from the cortical endosteal surface of rabbit long bones was −16.9±0.64 mV (n=335). Elevation of potassium concentration in medium caused a decrease in potential. As the external concentration of potassium reached 15 mmol/liter and above, there was a linear relationship between the potassium concentration in log scale and the membrane potential with a slope of −13 mV per 10-fold change in external potassium concentration… CONTINUE READING
