1. Single atrial myocytes were enzymatically isolated from the bull-frog as previously described (Hume & Giles, 1981), and patch-clamp techniques were used in an attempt to identify and separate two inwardly rectifying K+ channels in this tissue. 2. Single-channel measurements consistently demonstrated the existence of two different resting K+ channels, which both exhibited strong inward rectification. The unitary conductances of these K+ channels were 34 +/- 4 and 22 +/- 3 pS (mean +/- S.D… CONTINUE READING
