Channel 128559-iCaAN

General data

Metadata classes

  • Brain Area: dorsal horn of spinal cord
  • Neuron Type: wide dynamic range (WDR) neuron
  • Subtype: CAN

Metadata generic

  • Authors: A Destexhe, A Houweling, P Aguiar
  • Comments: Slow ca-dependent cation current, ican, kinetics based on partridge & swandulla (1988), from destexhe et al (1994), modified by a houweling. Time factor was introduced here to slow down activation time constant, and intracellular ca conc is halved. Taken from houweling & sejnowski (1997), model no. 3808, with the following changes: tau factor changed to 40 to slow down activation, parameter beta changed from 2.0e-3 to 5.0e-5, and cac changed from 1.0e-3 to 0.5e-3. Modeling study, with no mention of animal model. Channel kinetics come from various previous models of other neurons in other brain regions. For this channel, originally from partridge & swandulla 1988.
  • Temperature: Model has temperature dependence, with q10 assumed to be 3. Original kinetics were formulated at 22 deg C.
