Dentate gyrus granule GLU cellSomaI L high threshold.Cells acutely dissociated from slices obtained from chronic temporal lobe epilepsy patients displayed a high-voltage activated Ca2+ conductance with a pronounced Ca2+-dependent inactivation (Nagerl UV and Mody I, 1998 [human]2 ). Patch-clamp recordings from human cells showed N-type, L-type and T-type currents that had similar pharmacological and kinetic characteristics as in control rats. The current density was significantly larger in human and in the kainate model compared to cells isolated from adult control rats (Beck H et al, 1998 [human]1 ).
