AMPA-type glutamate receptor subunits are expressed in the avian cochlear hair cells and ganglion cells.


The cellular localization of AMPA-type glutamate receptor subunits was examined in the pigeon inner ear using subunit specific polyclonal antibodies (GluR1-4). In the auditory ganglion cell bodies immunoreactivity for the subunits GluR2/3 and GluR4, but not for GluR1 was detected. The hair cells showed diffuse immunoreactivity for GluR4. Additionally… (More)
