Quantification of the α3 Subunit of the Na+/K+-ATPase in Cerebellar Purkinje Neurons Using Luminescence

The study of the postnatal development of the cerebellar Purkinje cells of the rat led to the observation that between 10 and 20 days an increase in the resting membrane potential occurs.

[

H]- Ouabain binding in whole cerebellum correlated this hyperpolarization with an increased amount of the of the sodium (Na

) pump.
