The effects of short-chain fatty acids on the neuronal membrane functions ofHelix pomatia. I. electrical properties

1. The effects of short-chain fatty acids on the membrane excitability, currentvoltage (I-V) characteristics, and cell volume ofHelix pomatia neurons were studied. 2. 2-Decenoic acid (DA), having 10 carbon atoms in the hydrocarbon chain, suppressed the excitability of bursting neurons RPal (Sakharov and Salanki, 1969) for 30–60 min, while valeric acid (VA… CONTINUE READING
