Cochlear function in mice with only one copy of the prestin gene.

Abstract

Targeted deletion of the prestin gene reduces cochlear sensitivity and eliminates both frequency selectivity and outer hair cell (OHC) somatic electromotility. In addition, it has been reported by Liberman and colleagues that F2 generation heterozygotes exhibit a 6 dB reduction in sensitivity, as well as a decrease in protein and electromotility… (More)
