Barium and K(Ca) channels

Hi there,

I would like to know about group members experience or literature of the
action of barium ions on Ca-dependent potassium channels. Barium can
substitute for calcium in some events (like passing calcium channels).
Can it also activate the K(Ca) channels, or does it rather block them
like the inward rectifier?
