We have cloned and sequenced an alpha parvalbumin cDNA from the guinea pig cochlea. The deduced amino acid sequence shows greater identity with the rabbit sequence (86.3%) than with other mammalian sequences (< 82%). Using in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry, alpha parvalbumin mRNA and protein were found in primary auditory neurons and inner hair(More)
107 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from a rat cochlea cDNA library were identified by systematic sequencing coupled to database selection and RT-PCR analysis of novel sequences. This approach led us to select a clone, pCO8, showing no significant homology with any database sequence, that corresponds to a mRNA whose expression is restricted to the cochlea,(More)
