Hippocampus CA1 interneuron oriens alveus GABA cellSomaI K.These channels are assembled from subunits of the Kv3 family and are necessary for the fast spiking phenotype of O/A interneurons (Lien CC and Jonas P, 20032 ). Densities and kinetics were measured from patch clamp recordings (Martina M et al, 20003 ). Nucleated patches revealed a fast component highly sensitive to external 4-AP and TEA (~57% of total K+ current) and a slow component that was sensitive to high concentrations of TEA, but insensitive to 4-AP (~25% of total K+ current) (Lien CC et al, 20021 ).
Hippocampus CA1 interneuron oriens alveus GABA cellSomaI A.This current was measured in nucleated patches from O/A interneurons and found to be ~19% of the total potassium current (Lien CC et al, 20021 ).
