In an attempt to categorize the various early transient K+ currents (A-type K+ currents) present in mature neurons, we have explored these currents in the identified neurons in the abdominal ganglion of the mollusk, Aplysia californica. Three distinct types of A-type K+ currents (IAfast, IAslow, and IAdepol) were found. The activation and the steady-state inactivation properties of two of these currents, IAfast and IAslow, were similar to conventional A-type K+ currents. By contrast, those of… CONTINUE READING
