Previous work has shown that serotonin causes an increase in K+ conductance in the identified Aplysia neuron R15. This response is mediated by cAMP-dependent protein phosphorylation. The results presented here show that the K+ channel modulated by serotonin is an anomalous or inward rectifier (designated IR) that is present in R15 together with the three other distinct K+ channels previously described for this cell. Several lines of evidence indicate that this inward rectifier is partially… CONTINUE READING
