Abstract

Recent electrophysiological investigations of plasma membrane neurotransmitter transporters have shown that carriers can function in ways similar to ion channels. The results of these studies reveal underlying mechanisms not encompassed by classic carrier models and support an emerging view that transporter-mediated ionic currents may contribute to signaling in the nervous system.
