"The properties of slowly inactivating delayed-rectifier K+ current (IKdr) were investigated in NG108-15 neuronal cells differentiated with long-term exposure to dibutyryl cyclic AMP. ... The computer model, in which state-dependent inactivation of IKdr was incorporated, was also implemented to predict the firing behavior present in NG108-15 cells. ... Our theoretical work and the experimental results led us to propose a pivotal role of slowly inactivating IKdr in delayed firing of APs in NG108-15 cells. The results also suggest that aconitine modulation of IKdr gating is an important molecular mechanism through which it can contribute to neuronal firing."
