In addition to the CFTR, Cl[sup]− channel-gating depends on many factors, including transmembrane voltage, cell swelling, cross-linking with signal molecules, cell phosphorylation residue or ATP combination and hydrolysis caused by various ions and protein kinase.
This is clearly evident in the averaged current-voltage relationships for small- and large-field cells shown in Figure 2B, in which the peak amplitudes are plotted as a function of transmembrane voltage.
