Post-hypoxic changes in rat cortical neuron GABA A receptor function require L-type voltage-gated calcium channel activation.


Hypoxia modifies GABA(A) receptor (GABA(A)R) function and can cause seizures, encephalopathy or myoclonus. To characterize the effects of hypoxia on neuronal GABA(A)Rs, we subjected rat cortical neurons to 1% O2 for 2, 4 or 8h, followed by recovery times of 0-96h, and used whole-cell and perforated patch-clamp recording to assess GABA(A)R currents and… (More)
