Physiological role of dendrotoxin-sensitive K+ channels in the rat cerebellar Purkinje neurons

To understand the contribution of potassium (K+) channels, particularly α-dendrotoxin (D-type)-sensitive K+ channels (Kv.1, Kv1.2 or Kv1.6 subunits), to the generation of neuronal spike output we must have detailed information of the functional role of these channels in the neuronal membrane. Conventional intracellular recording methods in current clamp mode were used to identify the role of α-den…
