The aim of this study was to determine whether autophagy and AMPK contribute to premature senescence in auditory cells. Incubating HEI-OC1 auditory cells with 5 mM H2O2 for 1 h induced senescence, as demonstrated by senescence-associated β-galactosidase (SA-β-gal) staining. H2O2 treatment significantly delayed population-doubling time, leaving cell(More)
The NO productivity of auditory cells in response to LPS was examined by using conditionally immortalized murine HEI-OC1 auditory cells. HEI-OC1 cells produced NO in response to LPS ranging from 0.1 µg/ml to 100 µg/ml in a concentration-dependent manner. LPS at 100 µg/ml exhibited no cytotoxic action against HEI-OC1 cells and led to the highest level of NO(More)
The evaluation and management of vertigo in children varies among institutional and medical specialties. The aim of this study was to describe the characteristics of vertigo in children presenting at a national pediatric center. Patients < 16 years old presenting with vertigo to the department of otolaryngology at a national center for child health and(More)
