  • Comments: Kir potassium current for nucleus accumbens (irk1 = kir 2.1 mermelstein), written by j moyer 2004, cites the following: mermelstein et al (1998), uchimura et al (1989), kubo & murata (2001), and hayashi & fishman (1988). No apparent modeldb ancestors. Animal model is from experiments in paper. Channel data comes mostly from churchill & macvicar 1998, on adult rat accumbal cells. Activation kinetics fit to mouse data from kubo and murata 2001.
  • Runtime: 7.568
  • Temperature: No apparent temperature dependence. Experiments done at 33-35 deg C, simulations at 35 deg C.
