The effects of halothane on single human neuronal L-type calcium channels.

UNLABELLED We investigated halothane's effects on the function of L-type Ca2+ channels in a human neuronal cell line, SH-SY5Y, by using the cell-attached patch voltage clamp configuration and Ba2+ as the charge carrier. In multiple-channel patches, halothane decreased the peak and persistent Ba2+ currents, accelerated the rate of inactivation, and slowed… CONTINUE READING
