Permeabilized patch whole-cell voltage clamp methods were used to investigate the effects of isoprenaline (ISO) on total delayed rectifier potassium current, iK, in rabbit sino-atrial (SA) node pacemaker cells; total iK is composed of the rapidly activating iKr and the slowly activating iKs, but predominantly iKr in this species. ISO (20 nM) increased the amplitude of total iK and caused a negative shift of approximately 10 mV in the activation curve for iK, both in the absence and in the pre...Expand abstract
