Voltage-gated outward currents were studied in rabbit cultured Schwann cells with the 'whole-cell' configuration of the patch-clamp method. Four components of such currents were identified. The first, which was abolished by replacement of the external chloride ions by the large impermeant anion gluconate, was identified as a chloride current. The second and third were identified as potassium currents. One type of potassium current was reduced substantially by either 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) or… CONTINUE READING
