Intracellular recordings from salamander olfactory supporting cells

Stable intracellular potentials were recorded just below the surface of the salamander olfactory epithelium. The site of recording corresponded to the zone of highest density of supporting cell perikarya. The electrophysiological properties of cells recorded in this zone included: neither spontaneous nor evoked spike activity, high resting potential (-96 +/- 10 mV, n = 113) and low input resistance (15 +/- 12 M omega, n = 64). The cells were depolarized to -9 +/- 8 mV when the extracellular… CONTINUE READING
