The effects of a photoactivable (DMNPE-caged) ATP-analogue on ATP-regulated K(+)-channels (KATP-channel) in mouse pancreatic beta-cells were investigated using the inside-out patch configuration of the patch-clamp technique. The caged precursor caused a concentration-dependent reduction of channel activity with a Ki of 17 microM; similar to the 11 microM obtained for standard Mg-ATP. The small difference in the blocking capacity between the precursor and ATP is probably the reason why no chan...Expand abstract
