Evidence for two K+ currents activated upon hyperpolarization ofParamecium tetraurelia


Hyperpolarization of voltage-clampedParamecium tetraurelia in K+ solutions elicits a complex of Ca2+ and K+ currents. The tail current that accompanies a return to holding potential (−40 mV) contains two K+ components. The tail current elicited by a step to −110 mV of ≥50-msec duration contains fast-decaying (τ≈3.5 msec) and slow-decaying (τ≈20 msec… (More)
