Permeability of the membrane changes as function of voltage and time


Gate model

Gate Model

  • HH proposed the gate model to provide a quantitative framework for determining the time and membrane potential dependent properties of ion channel conductance

  • The Assumptions in the Gate Model:

    • Membrane comprise of aqueous pores through which the ions flow down their concentration gradient

    • These pores contain voltage sensitive gates that close and open dependent on trans membrane potential

    • The transition from closed to open state and vice-versa follow first order kinetics with rate constants: and


Kinetics of gate transition

Kinetics of gate transition

  • Let p represent the fraction of gates within the ion channel that are in open state at any given instant in time

  • 1-p represents the remaining fraction of the gates that are in closed state

  • If represents the transition rate for gate to go from closed to open state and represents the transition rate for gate to go from open to closed stat, we have

Steady state

The transient solution can then be obtained as:

OR

Open

p

Closed

1-p


Multiple gates

Multiple gates

  • If a ion channel is comprised of multiple gates; then each and every gate must be open for the channel to conduct ion flow.

  • The probability of gate opening then is given by:

  • Gate Classification

    • Activation Gate: p(t,V) increases with membrane depolarization

    • Inactivation Gate: p(t,V) decreases with membrane depolarization


The unknowns

The unknowns

  • In order to use the gate model to determine the ion channel dynamics, HH had to estimate the following 3 quantities

    • Macro characteristics of channel type

    • The number and type of gates on a given ion channel

    • The transition rate constants &

Macro characteristics include: Reversal potential, maximum conductance and ion specificy


The experiments

The experiments

  • Two important factors permitted HH analysis as they set about to design experiments to find the unknowns

    • Giant Squid Axon (Diameter approx 0.5 mm), allowed for the use of crude electronics of 1950’s (Squid axon’s utility for of nerve properties is credited to J.Z Young (1936) )

    • Development of feed back control device called the voltage clamp capable of holding the membrane potential to a desired value

      Before we look into the experiments; lets have a look at

      the model proposed by HH to describe the dynamics

      of squid axon cell membrane


Hh model

HH model

  • HH proposed the parallel conductance model wherein the membrane current is divided up into four separate contributions

    • Current carried by sodium ions

    • Current carried by potassium ions

    • Current carried by other ions (mainly chloride and designated as leak currents)

    • The capacitive current

      We have already seen this idea being utilized in GHK equations
