..., 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...

... 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...
