FCCP effects on 20 K+-induced Ca2+ transients. a A representative experiment showing the averaged Ca2+ response (n = 11 cells) to 20 mM K+ for 20 s in control and in the presence of 0.1 μM FCCP. b Superimposition of Ca2+ transients evoked in control (trace a) and in the presence of FCCP for 5 (trace b), 25 (trace c), and 45 min (trace d). Note the larger amplitude and slower decay time course for Ca2+ transients in FCCP. c Superimposition of subtracted traces (ba, ca, and da) to indicate the FCCP-enhanced Ca2+ transients as time progressed. The control trace (a) was also superimposed for better comparison of their kinetics but truncated for better visualization of the plateau-like delay prior to the decay of the FCCP-enhanced Ca2+ transients
