Stretch activation of the Aplysia S-channel

Abstract

The S-channel, a receptor-mediated K+ channel of Aplysia sensory neurons which functions in neuromodulation, bears a strong resemblance to the ubiquitous stretch-activated channels of snail neurons. Snail neuron stretch channels are stretch sensitive only in the patch, not at the macroscopic level, a situation which leaves open the question of their… (More)
