Effects of Na+ on the Predominant K+ Channel in the Tonoplast of Chara: Decrease of Conductance by Blocks in 100 Nanosecond Range and Induction of Oligo- or Poly-subconductance Gating Modes

Effects of Na+ on the Predominant K+ Channel in the Tonoplast of Chara: Decrease of Conductance... We present three mechanisms by which Na+ inhibits the open channel currents of the predominant K+ channel in the tonoplast of Chara corallina: (i) Fast block, i.e., short (100 ns range) interruptions of the open channel current which are determined by open channel noise analysis, (ii): Oligo-subconductance mode, i.e., a gating mode which occurs preferentially in the presence of Na+; this mode comprises a discrete number (here 3) of open states with smaller conductances than normal, and (iii): Polysubconductance mode, i.e., a gating mode with a nondiscrete, large number (>30) of states with smaller conductances than the main open channel conductance.

Abstract

We present three mechanisms by which Na+ inhibits the open channel currents of the predominant K+ channel in the tonoplast of Chara corallina: (i) Fast block, i.e., short (100 ns range) interruptions of the open channel current which are determined by open channel noise analysis, (ii): Oligo-subconductance mode, i.e., a gating mode which occurs preferentially in the presence of Na+; this mode comprises a discrete number (here 3) of open states with smaller conductances than normal, and (iii): Polysubconductance mode, i.e., a gating mode with a nondiscrete, large number (>30) of states with smaller conductances than the main open channel conductance. This novel mode has also been observed only in the presence of Na+.
