1.  Effect of riluzole on action potential in cultured human skeletal muscle cells (Wang YJ et al. 2008)
Simulation studies also unraveled that both decreased conductance of I(Na) and increased conductance of I(K(Ca)) utilized to mimic riluzole actions in skeletal muscle cells could combine to decrease the amplitude of action potentials and increase the repolarization of action potentials.
2.  Kv4.3, Kv1.4 encoded K(+) channel in heart cells (Greenstein et al 2000) (XPP)
A model of canine I:(to1) (the Ca(2+)-independent transient outward current) is formulated as the combination of Kv4.3 and Kv1.4 currents and is incorporated into an existing canine ventricular myocyte model. Simulations demonstrate strong coupling between L-type Ca(2+) current and I:(Kv4.3) and predict a bimodal relationship between I:(Kv4.3) density and APD whereby perturbations in I:(Kv4.3) density may produce either prolongation or shortening of APD, depending on baseline I:(to1) current level.
