Some of the most compelling evidence for the existence of ionic channels in cell membranes comes from direct recording of quantised current jumps generated by the opening and closing of individual channels. Single-channel jumps have been extensively studied for lipid bilayer membranes doped with various channel-forming additives1. Recently agonist-induced single-channel currents were detected in denervated frog muscle by use of extracellular electrodes, which can isolate the current from a… CONTINUE READING
