Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 311)

Summary

Ag+ caused an inward current on voltage-clamped skeletal muscle. The current was carried by Ca2+, Mg2+, and Na+, and was blocked by Cd2+or Ni2+ but not by nifedipine or D600. Channel gating is supposed to be modified by Ag+.
