Olfactory receptor GLU cellDistal equivalent dendriteI Cl,Ca.In cilia; K 0.5 for Ca activation is 5 uM; most of Ca activated current is carried by chloride and persists in the absence of Na and K; Cl channel inhibitor 3',5-dichlorodiphenylamine-2-carboxylate (300uM) reduces current 90%; other Cl-channel inhibitors were tested [SITS, DIDS, A9C, DPC, NPPB, DCDPC] (Kleene SJ and Gesteland RC, 1991 [frog]1 ). Properties of this channel in rat, and its functional interplay with the CNG channel, were studied by using inside-out membrane patches excised from ORN dendritic knobs/cilia (Reisert J et al, 20032 ). and inside-out membrane patches (Hallani M et al, 19983 ).
