In Drosophila shaker voltage-dependent potassium channels, alternative splicing at the amino and carboxy termini produces currents with different electrophysiological characteristics. We have cloned alternatively spliced forms of shaker from the spiny lobster Panulirus interruptus. Alternative exons were found at three sites of the gene; eight different 5'(More)
We have cloned cDNAs for the shaker potassium channel gene from the spiny lobster Panulirus interruptus. As previously found in Drosophila, there is alternative splicing at the 5' and 3' ends of the coding region. However, in Panulirus shaker, alternative splicing also occurs within the pore-forming region of the protein. Three different splice variants(More)
OBJECTIVE Targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) using the tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) erlotinib has demonstrated activity in aerodigestive tract malignancies. Co-targeting of the G-protein-coupled receptor cyclooxygenase (COX) with EGFR inhibitors has shown promise in preclinical models and early phase clinical studies. MATERIALS AND(More)
Cholinergic inhibition of hair cells occurs by activation of calcium-dependent potassium channels. A near-membrane postsynaptic cistern has been proposed to serve as a store from which calcium is released to supplement influx through the ionotropic ACh receptor. However, the time and voltage dependence of acetylcholine (ACh)-evoked potassium currents reveal(More)
The differential diagnosis of middle ear masses encompasses a wide variety of pathologic conditions. In this report, we describe the case of a 6-year-old girl who presented with facial nerve weakness and was found to have a middle ear mass. The mass was excised, and final pathology revealed hemangioendothelioma. This report describes the youngest patient(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a cadaveric temporal bone preparation to compare the strength of superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SCD) repair techniques. BACKGROUND Superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome is a clinical condition with a variety of auditory and vestibular symptoms resulting from a mobile third window into the inner ear. Patients with(More)
