Retina bipolar GLU cellSomaI Potassium.A slowly activating, outward rectifying potassium current is present in subpopulation of isolated bipolar cells (Lasater EM, 19881 ). In gold fish retinal bipolar cells, four currents are observed: Ca currents, voltage- and calcium-dependent K currents, and Ih current (Kaneko A and Tachibana M, 19852 ).
Retina bipolar GLU cellSomaI Calcium.Voltage-dependent Ca currents are seen in isolated bipolar cells (Lasater EM, 19881 ). In gold fish retinal bipolar cells, four currents are observed: Ca currents, voltage- and calcium-dependent K currents, and Ih current (Kaneko A and Tachibana M, 19852 ). In mouse retinal bipolar cells, T-type Ca currents were recorded in soma, while L-type currents were recorded from axonal terminal (Satoh H et al, 19983 ).
Retina bipolar GLU cellSomaI K,Ca.Ca-dependent potassium currents are seen in dissociated cells (Lasater EM, 19881 ). In gold fish retinal bipolar cells, four currents are observed: Ca currents, voltage- and calcium-dependent K currents, and Ih current (Kaneko A and Tachibana M, 19852 ).
