1. Synaptic vesicles were isolated and fused into large structures with a diameter of more than 20 microns to characterize their ionic channels. The 'cell'-attached and inside-out configurations of the patch clamp technique were used. 2. Two types of ion channels were most frequently observed: a low conductance chloride channel and a high conductance non-specific channel. 3. The non-specific channel has a main conducting state and a substate. The main conducting state has a slope conductance of… CONTINUE READING
