The physiological and pharmacological properties of the motoneuron membrane and action potential were investigated in larval zebrafish using whole cell patch current-clamp recording techniques. Action potentials were eliminated in tetrodotoxin, repolarized by tetraethylammonium (TEA) and 3,4-diaminopyridine (3,4-AP)-sensitive potassium conductances, and had a cobalt-sensitive, high-threshold calcium component. Depolarizing current injection evoked a brief (approximately 10-30 ms) burst of… CONTINUE READING
