Erythrocytes - Single Channel Recordings
Patchliner data and applications:
The membrane of erythrocytes contains different ion channels like Ca2+-activated K+ channels, or the volume-sensitive Na+/K+ pump. Studies also revealed the participation of a Ca2+-permeable non-selective cation channel in the regulation of erythrocyte 'apoptosis'. Shown are single channel fluctuations as recorded from an erythrocyte in the cell attached configuration on the Patchliner.
