Abstract

The treatment of nodal membrane with water-soluble carbodiimide results in a deceleration of the time-course of activation and inactivation of Na+ channels and in a decrease in the steepness of the voltage-dependence of the channel gating. The effective charge of activation decreases from about 5 to 3 electronic charges. Carbodiimide is effective only at low (4.3-4.9) pH, which means that it reacts most probably with carboxyl groups. The data are consistent with the proposal that carboxyl groups may serve as 'gating particles'.
