Xenopus retinal ganglion cell growth cones express various voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels. We showed previously that 4-aminopyridine and tetraethylammonium have different effects on the outward currents of embryonic Xenopus retinal ganglion cells. Therefore, we asked whether these Kv channel inhibitors differentially regulate the response of retinal… CONTINUE READING
