  • Comments: TITLE Slow delayed rectifier potassium channel (voltage dependent) COMMENT Slow delayed rectifier potassium channel (voltage dependent) Ions: k Style: quasi-ohmic From: Slow delayed rectifier K+ currents: Storm, 1990: (3) IK activates slowly (time constant, 20–60 ms) in response to depolarizations positive to -40 mV and inactivates (about 5s) at -80 to -40 mV; it probably participates in spike repolarization. (4) IM activates slowly (about 50 ms) positive to -60 mV and does not inactivate; it tends to attenuate excitatory inputs, it reduces the firing rate during maintained depolarization (adaptation) and contributes to the medium after-hyperpolarization (mAHP). Updates: 2014 December (Marianne Bezaire): documented ? ? (Aradi): shifted the voltage dependence by -12 mV - don't know why ENDCOMMENT VERBATIM #include <stdlib.h> /* Include this library so that the following (innocuous) warning does not appear: In function '_thread_cleanup': warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function 'free' */ ENDVERBATIM
