We are investigating how dopaminergic modulation of single channels can be combined to make the D1R possitive MSN more excitable. We also connect multiple channels to substrates of a dopamine induced subcellular cascade to highlight that the classical pathway is too slow to explain DA induced kinetics in the subsecond range (Howe and Dombeck, 2016. doi: 10.1038/nature18942)

COMMENT

Model is based on mixed data. Activation curve is from neostriatal
medium spinal neurons of adult P28+ rats [1, Fig.12F], unspecified
recording temperature. Potentials were not corrected for the liquid
junction potential, which was estimated to be 7 mV.  Activation time
constant is from the rodent neuron culture (both rat and mouse cells),
room temperature 22-25 C [2, Fig.15B].  Inactivation data is from human
(HEK) cells [3, Tab.1, Tab.2], supposedly at room temperature.

Kinetics of m2h type is used [2, Fig.5]. Activation of m2 type is
fitted to the experimental data [1,4], activation time constant [2]
is scaled up as well.  Original NEURON model [5,4] was modified by
Alexander Kozlov <akozlov@kth.se>. Activation time constant was refitted
to avoid singularity in the expression.
