Fast responses to extracellular ATP are mediated by the activation of P2X receptors. Native and cloned P2X receptors are permeable to monovalent cations such as Na+ and K+ as well as divalent cations such as Ca2+. However, altered P2X receptor expression has not been definitively determined under pathological conditions, particularly in epilepsy. Here we show that, in the seizure-sensitive (SS) gerbil hippocampus, a recognized genetic epilepsy model, the expressions of both P2X2 and P2X4… Expand
