Hair cells isolated from the crista ampullaris of the frog (Rana pipiens) remained viable for up to 5 h and were studied using whole cell voltage- and current clamp recordings. Morphological characteristics of isolated crista hair cells were compared with hair cells studied in situ using light- and electron microscopy. While other labyrinthine hair cells such as mammalian inner and outer hair cells of the cochlea, saccular hair cells of the frog, and cochlear hair cells of the turtle typically… CONTINUE READING
