Title: A method of patch clamp recording in hyperbaric oxygen.
Author: Jamieson, CV; MacDonald, AG
Abstract: A method of patch clamp recording in hyperbaric oxygen is described which is derived from a method for patch clamping at high hydrostatic pressure. Excised patches equilibrate with hyperbaric oxygen within 10 minutes. Experiments with BK channels expressed in HEK 293 cells showed that 1 MPa O2 caused an increase in the ionic permeability of the patch, an effect accelerated in the presence of ferrous ions. Seal resistance was unaffected. Small negative currents, (VH - 40 to - 65 mV, symmetrical KCl solutions), apparent in skewed all-points amplitude histograms, reduced the signal to noise ratio. In some patches the BK channel activity was inhibited and in others it persisted with the currents becoming irresolvable in the increased noise.
