Voltage-gated inward currents of morphologically identified cells of the frog taste disc.


We used the patch clamp technique to record from taste cells in vertical slices of the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) taste disc. Cell types were identified by staining with Lucifer yellow in a pipette after recording their electrophysiological properties. Cells could be divided into the following three groups: type Ib (wing) cells with sheet-like apical… (More)
