The effects of fourteen halogenated ethers on the sodium and potassium currents of voltage-clamped squid giant axons have been examined. Effects under open-circuit were also studied. In voltage-clamped axons, the ethers tended to reduce potassium currents at least as much, if not more, than sodium currents. This finding distinguishes the halogenated ethers… CONTINUE READING
