..., and after myocytes were acutely warmed to 11°C, which is in the upper range of temperatures experienced by burbot in nature. Results on K + channels support our hypothesis as the relative density of K-channel conductances in the burbot heart are similar to those found for cold-acclimated cold-active fish...

... + current fully inactivated during a depolarisation to +30 mV with a time-constant of ∼9 ms, and the time constant of recovery from inactivation at –70 mV was 13.2 s. This long-lasting inactivation of the K + channel was the major factor in the augmentation of both action potentials and contractions...

... in the transepithelial resistance were also observed following the hypotonicity exposure. The electrogenic V te and I sc responses to hypotonicity resulted from the activation of different K + and anion conductive pathways on the apical and basolateral membranes of the epithelium: (a) iberiotoxin-sensitive K + channels...

... very high ammonia levels in its tissues; (5) get rid of ammonia as NH 3 gas and, probably, (6) possesses background K + channels that are impermeable to NH 4 + . The effects of extracellular ammonia on the contraction performance of the heart from this fish were found to be the same as in rainbow trout...

... by the reversible inhibition of I sc by Ba 2+ added to the mucosal Ringer. Analysis of the kinetics of Ba 2+ inhibition of I sc indicates that there might be more than one type of K + channel carrying the I sc . This hypothesis was supported by power spectra obtained with a serosa-to-mucosa K + gradient, which...
