Intracellular injection of phorbol ester increases the excitability of neurons of the motor cortex of awake cats.

Abstract

The electrophysiological effects of two intracellularly injected phorbol esters (PhEs) which activate protein kinase C, phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate and phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate, were investigated in neurons of the motor cortex of awake cats. The major finding was that intracellularly injected PhEs increased the excitability of the neurons. This was… (More)
