K+ currents of adult rat superior cervical ganglion neurons were studied using the voltage-clamp technique. Neuronal somata were dissociated from the ganglion using an enzymatic dispersion technique and voltage-clamped using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. In solutions designed to isolate K+ currents, depolarization from a prepulse potential of -100 mV induced both transient and sustained outward current components. The transient current was completely eliminated by depolarization to -50… CONTINUE READING
