Article Title: Predominant Functional Expression of Kv1.3 by Activated Microglia of the Hippocampus after Status epilepticus
Figure Lengend Snippet: Effects of α-dendrotoxin (A, 50 nM), agitoxin-2 (B, 10 and 50 nM) and margatoxin (C, 1 and 10 nM) on the leak subtracted current induced by a voltage step from −70 to +40 mV (black traces recorded in control, red traces after drug application). The leak conductances of the cells in A, B and C were 338, 862 and 332 pS, respectively. The graphs on the right represent the conductance, normalized to its maximum value, as a function of the membrane potential and its inhibition by α-dendrotoxin (A, n = 4, Dtx), agitoxin-2 (B, AgTx, n = 14 for 10 nM, n = 6 for 50 nM) and margatoxin (C, MgTX, n = 8 for 1 nM, n = 11 for 10 nM).
Article Snippet: Reagents Alpha-dendrotoxin, recombinant agitoxin-2 and recombinant margatoxin were purchased from Alomone labs (Jerusalem, Israel).
