Olfactory receptor GLU cellAxon hillockI Na,t.TTX-sensitive (Trombley PQ and Westbrook GL, 1991 [rat]1 ).
Olfactory receptor GLU cellSomaI L high threshold.Cultured cells; blocked by 100 uM Cd or nifedipine (IC50=368 nM); no T-type Ca channels found (Trombley PQ and Westbrook GL, 1991 [rat]1 ). Mechanisms underlying suppression of this current by odorants were investigated in newt ORNs using the whole-cell version of the patch-clamp technique (Kawai F, 19992 ).
Olfactory receptor GLU cellSomaI Na,t.Cultured cells; TTX-sensitive (Trombley PQ and Westbrook GL, 1991 [rat]1 ). TTX-resistant (Firestein S and Werblin FS, 1987 [salamander]3 ).
Olfactory receptor GLU cellSomaI K.(Firestein S and Werblin FS, 1987 [salamander]3 ). Cultured cells (Trombley PQ and Westbrook GL, 1991 [rat]1 ). Effects of odorants on this current in newt ORNs were investigated using whole-cell patch-clamp (Kawai F, 19992 ).
