How to use
Effects of these compounds (10 microM) on the membrane potential of HEKBKalphabeta1 were monitored by use of DiBAC(4)(3), a voltage-sensitive dye. Dihydroisopimaric acid induces substantial membrane hyperpolarization. Dihydroisopimaric acid (1-10 microM) activates BKalphabeta1 in the direct measurement of BKalphabeta1 opening under whole-cell voltage clamp.
