Olfactory bulb main interneuron periglomerular cellSomaI A.Two types of PG cells can be distinguished by the presence of delayed-rectifier. R-type has DR current and shows outward rectification under current-clamp; N-type does not. A third type, X-type, has properties of both R- and N-type. Zinc modifies the A-type current, but not the delayed-rectifier type: at given voltages, it reduces A-current peak amplitude, slows its kinetics. Zinc shifts activation and inactivation toward more positive voltage. Thus, at physiological resting potential -55mV, zinc accelerates repolarization. (Puopolo M and Belluzzi O, 1998321 ) mRNA of A-channel subunit Kv4.3 is expressed predominantly in periglomerular cells. (In contrast, that of Kv4.2, also of A-channel, is expressed predominantly in granule cells) (Serodio P and Rudy B, 1998314 )
