1. The expression of K+ currents in mouse outer hair cells (OHCs) was investigated as a function of developmental age between postnatal day (P) 0 and P26, using whole-cell patch clamp. 2. During the first postnatal week, a slow outward K+ current (IK,neo) was expressed by all OHCs from the apical coil of the cochlea. The amplitude of this current increased greatly between P0 and P6. Then, at the beginning of the second postnatal week, IK,neo decreased. At the same time, from P8 onwards, IK,n, a… CONTINUE READING
