TITLE Slow Cadependent potassium current
:
: Ca++ dependent K+ current IC responsible for slow AHP
: Differential equations
:
: Model based on a first order kinetic scheme
:
: + n cai <> (alpha,beta)
:
: Following this model, the activation fct will be halfactivated at
: a concentration of Cai = (beta/alpha)^(1/n) = cac (parameter)
:
: The mod file is here written for the case n=2 (2 binding sites)
: 
:
: This current models the "slow" IK[Ca] (IAHP):
:  potassium current
:  activated by intracellular calcium
:  NOT voltage dependent
:
: A minimal value for the time constant has been added
