The firing pattern of auditory neurons is determined in part by the type of voltage-sensitive potassium channels expressed. The expression patterns for two high-threshold potassium channels, Kv3.1 and Kv3.3, that differ in inactivation properties were examined in the rat auditory system. The positive activation voltage and rapid deactivation kinetics of(More)
Cytoglobin (Cygb) is a recently discovered intracellular respiratory globin, which exists in all types of cells. It has been suggested that Cygb has a role in protecting cells against oxidative stress. In the present study we have tested this hypothesis. The N2a neuroblastoma cells were exposed to various kinds of insults, including hydrogen peroxide(More)
