Representative Electrophysiology Recordings 

                3µBRUS-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-IVAdoes 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: IVrelationships measured in control (open circles) and after application of 3mBRUS-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.

Terms and Warranty
Pipettes are manufactured to substantially conform with the descriptions on this webpage.  However, the customer should note that variability exists in the manufacturing process, estimated from 10-20%, with respect to tip diameter, taper length, and tip angle within and between lots.  The customer should communicate prior to ordering and manufacture any specialized requirements with respect to these parameters, including restriction to variability within and between lots.  Specific applicability, fitness and merchantability are not warranted.  Warranty compliance is met by replacement, full or partial refund on Fivephoton Biochemicals discretion.
