Mechanism of nerve membrane depolarization caused by grayanotoxin I.

1. The mechanism of depolarization of squid axon membranes caused by grayanotoxin I has been studied by means of internal perfusion and voltage clamp techniques.2. The depolarization induced by either internal or external application of grayanotoxin I was reversed by decreasing the external sodium concentration from 449 to 1 mm.3. No depolarization was… CONTINUE READING
