Primary afferent neurons are functionally heterogeneous. To determine whether this functional heterogeneity reflects, in part, heterogeneity in the regulation of the concentration of intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)), the magnitude and decay of evoked Ca(2+) transients were assessed in subpopulations of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons with voltage clamp and fura-2 ratiometric imaging. To determine whether differences in evoked Ca(2+) transients among subpopulations of DRG neurons reflected… CONTINUE READING
