The histochemical and cytochemical localization of carbonic anhydrase activity in the inner ear of guinea pig was studied with Hansson's method and modified Yokota's method. All cells possessing the cell membrane infoldings are proved to have the enzymatic activity.

The supporting cells of both cochlear and vestibular hair cells also show the enzymatic activity. The reaction… CONTINUE READING
