  • * v1/2 and zm are the half-maximal voltage and gating valence of activation. Data from Stühmer et al. (1989) did not include an assessment of statistical significance.  

  • Data from Chen et al. (1996).  

  • § Data from Stühmer et al. (1989).  

  • The values for zm from Stühmer et al. (1989) were multiplied by three for comparison because those values were based on three identical gating charges (m3).  

  • 176 Values statistically significant, with a probability <0.05 resulting from random variation.
