Test of VGCCs input into 5HT-1B effect on transmembrane current.
By Sergiy Sylantyev on 12/10/2023
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: Arcuate nucleus

1 μM omega -Agatoxin TK was used as a part of a mixture (also containing 1 μM omega -Conotoxin GVIA and 5 μM R-(+)-Bay-K) which blocks voltage-gated calcium channels in a living neuron membrane. Left: the effect of activation of 5HT-1B and AMPA receptors on transmembrane current evoked upon membrane depolarization. Blue trace: control; red trace: 5HT-1B and AMPA receptors activation. Right: block of VGCCs results in 100% suppression of transmembrane current.
