The single channel properties of P2X ATP receptors were investigated in outside-out patches from hippocampal granule cells in brain slices from 12-day-old rats. The results demonstrate that functional P2X ATP receptors are expressed in hippocampal granule cells and, combined with previously published information on the P2X subunits expressed in the hippocampus, suggest that the receptors may be heteromers of the P2X4 and P2X6 subunits or P2X1, P2X2, P2X4 and P2X6 subunits. Two distinct types of… CONTINUE READING
