Previous studies in retinal glial (Müller) cells have suggested that the dominant membrane currents are mediated by K(+) inward-rectifier (Kir) channels. After blockade of inwardly (Kir) and outwardly (KD and BK) conducting channels, a large K(+) conductance remains, but its nature has not been determined. Tandem-pore K(+) channels are likely candidates for this potassium conductance and the purpose of the present study was to determine, using immunocytochemistry, whether Müller cells express… CONTINUE READING
