Cerebellum interneuron granule GLU cellSomaI Potassium.Granule cells that lack GABAA receptors (in somatic location? ) express the two-pore-domain K+ channel TASK-1, a voltage-independent K + conductance, so as to maintain normal neuronal behaviour (Brickley SG et al, 20012 ). Importance for membrane excitability of an GABAB receptor-activated inward-rectifying potassium current, sensitive to pertussis toxin and barium (Slesinger PA et al, 19971 ). Cerebellar granule cells from young rats (postnatal days 1-9) possess voltage-activated inward Na+ current as well as two types of K+ current, IA and IK (Cull-Candy SG et al, 19893 ). Single-channel and whole-cell recording identified three types of current: a transient inward sodium current and a transient and a sustained outward potassium current (Jalonen T et al, 19904 ).
