10.22099/ijste.2013.1032

Abstract

In this study, the time-course of the recovery from inactivation of molluscan ionic currents is examined. Molluscan voltage-gated ionic currents are described in Hodgkin-Huxley-like equations. The peak value function of the recovering conductance is derived from the mathematical equivalent of an experimental procedure of the recovery process in a general form by including the number of inactivation gates. Then the curves of the recovery and its approximation for the molluscan ionic currents are obtained. It is shown that recovering conductance of molluscan ionic currents is asymptotically exponential.
