Characterization of ATP-sensitive potassium channels in intestinal, cholecystokinin-secreting cells.
In the present study, the electrophysiologic properties of ATP-sensitive potassium channels were evaluated in an intestinal, cholecystokinin-secreting cell line (STC-1). Channels were operative under basal conditions and, in cell-attached membrane patches, channel activity was decreased by glucose or disopyramide, agents which classically inhibit ATP-sensitive potassium channels. Channel activity was increased by the KATP channel opener, diazoxide. Intestinal ATP-sensitive potassium channels appear to behave in a similar manner to those found in cardiac and pancreatic beta cells.
