Note(s): The gating of ion channels has been modeled by assuming that the transitions between open and closed states is a memoryless process. Nevertheless, analysis of records of unitary current events suggests that the kinetic process presents short-term memory, i.e. the open- and closed-dwell times are short-term correlated. Here the rescaled range analysis (R/S Hurst analysis) is used as a method to test long-term correlation, in single calcium-activated potassium channels present in Leydig cells.
