Calix afferent fibers generate depolarizing DC (direct current) and superimposed AC (alternating current) potentials in response to a vibrating stimulation of the hair bundle in an isolated preparation of a chicken semicircular canal ampulla. The wave form of the postsynaptic potential appears similar to the transduction potential of hair cells, which(More)
Carotenes are naturally abundant unsaturated hydrocarbon pigments, and their fascinating physical and chemical properties have been studied intensively not only for better understanding of the roles in biological processes but also for the use in artificial chemical systems. However, their metal-binding ability has been virtually unexplored. Here we report(More)
