The carbachol-evoked inward cationic current in guinea-pig ileum smooth muscle cells is comprised of three types nonselective cationic channels (NSCC) with small (10±2 pS), medium(56±8 pS) and large (135±14 pS) unitary conductance. All three types of NSCC could be activated by external application of carbachol as well as by internal application of GTPgS. It was found that behavior of carbachol- and GTPgS- evoked whole-cell current is mainly determined by the properties of medium conductance channels. The U-shaped I-V relationship of the whole-cell cationic current at negative potentials range arrives from voltage-dependence of its Po of this channel.
