Abstract

A new low-conductance cationic channel has been recorded with the patch-clamp technique in excised patches of the luminal membrane of intact endothelial cells. The channel had conductance of 5.4 pS and the lifetime of 46 ms. It was equally permeable for Na+ and K+, but impermeable to Cl-. The lifetime and probability of the open state of the channel were independent of the membrane potential.
