Using indo-1 microspectrofluorometry, we examined the effects of cholinergic agonists on the concentration of intracellular Ca(2+) ions ([Ca(2+)](i)) in spiral ganglion neurons, isolated from rat cochleae at different stages of post-natal development (from P3 to P30). Extracellular application of acetylcholine (ACh) or carbamylcholine generated a rapid and(More)
Vitamin E, a micronutrient (comprising alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherols, alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocotrienols), has documented antioxidant and non-antioxidant effects, some of which inhibit inflammation and angiogenesis. We compared the abilities of alpha-, gamma- and delta-tocopherols to regulate human blood cytotoxicity (BEC) and(More)
