Representative Electrophysiology Recordings 

                3µM BRUS-3145                    200nM omega-AgaIVA+5microM BRUS-3145

Figure Legends: 
Upper panel demonstrates stability of Ca++ channels and potentiation effect of experimental substance BRUS-3145 recorded with patch pipettes produced by FIVEphoton Biochemicals isolated cortex neurons of rat.  w-Aga-IVA does not block the BRUS-induced potentiation of the Ca++ channels. The cortex neuron which demonstrated the potentiation effect under the addition of 3mM BRUS-3145 was then incubated in 200nM w-Aga-IVA. Left panel: IV relationships measured in control (open circles) and after application of 3mM BRUS-3145 (filled circles). Right panel: IV relationships measured after 3 min incubation in w-Aga-IVA (open triangles) and after subsequent application of 3mM BRUS-3145 (filled triangles). The recovery (squares) was obtained within 1 min in both cases.
