Ionic Relations of Cells of Chara Australis VIII. Membrane Currents During a Voltage Clamp
Australian Journal of Biological Sciences
17(2) 388 - 399
Experiments are described in which "voltage clamps" were applied to the "membrane" of O. australis cells comprising tonoplast and plasmalemma and also to the plasmalemma alone. The voltage-clamp system maintained the membrane potential at a predetermined level, and enabled a detailed analysis to be made of the transient electrical phenomena occurring during the action potential. A scarming technique is also described, by means of which the membrane currentpotential characteristics could be determined at any particular time during the transient activity of the membrane.
