[QUESTION] How determine or define single channel conductances ?

Hi!

In my opinion the ionic conductance of a channel is defined by the following
equation:
I=g(E-V)   [with I being the current flowing through the channel, g as the
conductance, E as equilibrium for the ion(s) conducted by the channel and V for
the voltage across the membrane]
This would incorporate any effects caused by changes in the ion concentration in
the value of E.
Might this be the answer to your question?

Gunnar
