Intracellular Electrodes

Category : 11th Class

The concentration of various ions in different parts is now studies by using a glass microelectrode. It has silver wire dipped in KCl solution. This technique is used for studying the movement of ions through ions channels.

The ions channels are intrinsic membrane proteins. For studying this passive transport of ions through ion channels Neher and Sakman developed a Patch clamp technique for which they are awarded Nobel prize in 1991.
