    Alomone Labs tta p2
    The selective T-type calcium channel inhibitor, <t>TTA-P2,</t> blocked low-threshold spikes/currents in BF vGluT2+ neurons A. In current clamp, a representative vGluT2+ neuron showed rebound spikes following 1 s hyperpolarizing current injections (-180 or -300 pA). The neuron was initially held at ∼-70 mV. B. The same neuron shown in A was incubated with 500 nM TTX to block sodium-dependent action potentials. A hyperpolarizing current injection induced a low-threshold spike (control: black trace) which was blocked by TTA-P2 (red trace). C. In voltage clamp and in the presence of TTX, a representative vGluT2+ neuron showed an inward current at the removal of a 1s voltage step to -125 mV (control: black trace). TTA-P2 also blocked this rebound inward current (red trace). D. I-V plot with the voltage steps shown on the x-axis and the amplitude of rebound inward currents shown on the y-axis. Data were plotted as mean± SEM (n=6).

    The selective T-type calcium channel inhibitor, TTA-P2, blocked low-threshold spikes/currents in BF vGluT2+ neurons A. In current clamp, a representative vGluT2+ neuron showed rebound spikes following 1 s hyperpolarizing current injections (-180 or -300 pA). The neuron was initially held at ∼-70 mV. B. The same neuron shown in A was incubated with 500 nM TTX to block sodium-dependent action potentials. A hyperpolarizing current injection induced a low-threshold spike (control: black trace) which was blocked by TTA-P2 (red trace). C. In voltage clamp and in the presence of TTX, a representative vGluT2+ neuron showed an inward current at the removal of a 1s voltage step to -125 mV (control: black trace). TTA-P2 also blocked this rebound inward current (red trace). D. I-V plot with the voltage steps shown on the x-axis and the amplitude of rebound inward currents shown on the y-axis. Data were plotted as mean± SEM (n=6).
