omega -Conotoxin suppresses field EPSP amplitude.
By Anonymous on 06/12/2019
Assay Type: Ex Vivo
Species: Rat
Cell Line/Tissue: Anterior cingulate cortex

Experiment to test dependence of field EPSPs in neural tissue from N-type Ca2+ channels. 10 min incubation with 25 microM omega -Conotoxin GVIA decreased significantly fEPSP amplitude. Blue: control. Red: after incubation with omega -Conotoxin GVIA.
