[Effects of some bivalent and trivalent ions and of EGTA on the process of activation of the ampullar receptors].


In order to define the role of Ca++ in labyrinthine receptors the endolymph in isolated canal preparations was replaced with modified solutions containing Ca-substitutes(Sr++, Ba++), Ca-antagonists(La+++, Cd++, Mg++) and Ca-chelating agents(EGTA). The response of the receptors was evaluated by recording the slow and propagated potentials from the ampullar… (More)
