The resolved alpha-GTP gamma S (alpha*) and beta gamma-subunits of human erythrocyte Gk, the stimulatory regulatory component of hormone-responsive K+ channels, were tested for their potential stimulatory activities on the K+ channel of the endocrine GH3 cell. Concentrations as...

The ion current induced by the glutamate receptor agonist N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) in voltage-clamped hippocampal neurons was inhibited by ethanol (EtOH). Inhibition increased in a concentration-dependent manner over the range 5 to 50 mM, a range that also produces intoxication....

As an important intracellular second-messenger, the concentration of calcium in the cytosol [Ca+2]i influences diverse cellular activities. To investigate the calcium requirement for distinct phases of B cell activation, we studied the effect of altering the quantity of extracellular...

The effects of apamin and quinine on glucose-induced electrical activity in pancreatic islets from ob/ob mice (Norwich colony) were compared. Apamin (40-400 nM) increased the duration of the bursts of electrical activity, whereas quinine (50-100 microM) affected only slightly...

Membrane potential-current and mechanical tension of frog atrial muscle were studied in a Ca and Mg-free solution containing 1 mmol/l EGTA (Ca-free solution). Exposure to Ca-free solution resulted in a shortening of action potential duration within 1.5 min and...

It is known that Steatoda (Lityphantes) paykulliana and Latrodectus mactans tredecimguttatus spider venoms are toxic to mammals and insects. These venoms act presynaptically eliciting massive release of transmitters. They also form channels in bilayer lipid membranes (BLM) that are...

The roles of apical and basolateral transport mechanisms in the regulation of cell volume and the hydraulic water permeabilities (Lp) of the individual cell membranes of the Amphiuma early distal tubule (diluting segment) were evaluated using video and optical...

The Paramecium mutant, pantophobiac A, has a defect that results in an in vivo loss of calcium-dependent potassium efflux channel activity. This defect is corrected fully by the microinjection of wild-type Paramecium calmodulin into pantophobiac A cells and is...

We have developed a model of reperfusion injury in Krebs buffer-perfused rabbit lungs, characterized by pulmonary vasoconstriction, microvascular injury, and marked lung edema formation. During reperfusion there was a threefold increase in lung superoxide anion (O2-) production, as measured...

The blocking effects of local anesthetics, mexiletine and disopyramide on the sodium currents (INa) of enzymatically isolated, single cells from rat ventricle were studied under voltage clamp conditions. A suction pipette technique was used for voltage clamp and internal...

The organic Ca2+ antagonists are potent inhibitors of Ca2+ influx in cardiac and smooth muscle and are widely used clinically in the treatment of various cardiovascular disorders. It appears that Ca2+ antagonist binding prevents the normal movement of ions...

Potassium channels were resolved in Vicia faba guard cell protoplasts by patch voltage-clamp. Whole-cell currents and single K+ channels had linear instantaneous current-voltage relations, reversing at the calculated Nernst potential for K+. Whole cell K+ currents activated exponentially during...
