ABSTRACT
Abstract  Patch-clamp and concentration jump studies showed that gadolinium ions dose-dependently reduced the amplitude of proton-activated currents (pH 6.5) in isolated Purkinje cells (gadolinium concentration producing a half-maximum effect was 69 µM for the peak and 8 µM for the stationary component of the current). The magnitude of the block did not depend on membrane potential at negative clamping potentials. Gadolinium blockade of activated receptor was more rapid and intensive in comparison with blocking of silent receptor.

    It was previously reported that diols dissolved in water (pH 8, EPPS buffer) react with benzoyl methyl phosphate (BMP) in the presence of lanthanide ions to form monobenzoyl esters. We have investigated the possibility of extending this process to include formation of esters of monosaccharides...
