Action of hypotaurine on glycine receptor.

Hypotaurine was in use to find out the relative power of beta-alanine effect on glycine receptor. Outside-out membrane patches underwent application of hypotaurine and then different concentrations of beta-alanine, as indicated at the figure.

Easily dissolvable.
