Abstract

Single Na+ channel currents were recorded from cell-attached membrane patches from two neuronal cell lines derived from rat brain, B50 and B104, and compared before and after exposure of the cells to purified brevetoxin, PbTx-3. B50 and B104 Na+ channels usually exhibited fast activation and inactivation as is typical of TTX-sensitive Na+ channels. PbTx-3 modified channel gating in both cell lines. PbTx-3 caused (1) significant increases in the frequency of channel reopening, indicating a slowing of channel inactivation, (2) a change in the voltage dependence of the channels, promoting channel opening during steady-state voltage clamp of the membrane at voltages throughout the activation range of Na+ currents, but notably near the resting potential of these cells (-60 - -50 mV), and (3) a significant, 6.7 mV hyperpolarized shift in the threshold potential for channel opening. Na+ channel slope conductance did not change in PbTx-3- exposed B50 and B104 neurons. These effects of Pbx-3 may cause hyperexcitability as well as inhibitory effects in intact brain.
