Abstract. The organ of Corti is a complex structure containing a single row of inner hair cells (IHCs) and three rows of outer hair cells (OHCs), supported respectively by one row of inner phalangeal cells and three rows of Deiters' cells. When fetal rat organ of Corti explants are cultured, supernumerary OHCs and supernumerary Deiters' cells are produced, without any additional cell proliferation. Analysis of semi- and ultrathin sections revealed that supernumerary OHCs are produced at the… Expand
Macrophage contribution to the response of the rat organ of Corti to amikacin
TLDR
Analysis of the time course of ultrastructural and phenotypical changes occurring in Deiters cells (hair cell supporting cells) after ototoxic treatment in the rat suggests early treatments with anti‐inflammatory factors might promote supporting cell survival, thus improving the efficacy of more specific strategies aimed to regenerate hair cells from nonsensory cells.

Early identification of inner pillar cells during rat cochlear development
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the organ of Corti develops from a non-proliferating cell zone that is located in the junctional region between two edges of the dorsal epithelium of the cochlear duct, and the development of inner pillar cells within the prosensory domain seems not to involve Notch1 activation.

Strategies to regenerate hair cells: Identification of progenitors and critical genes
TLDR
This review is first focused on the occurrence of spontaneous supernumerary hair cells and on nestin positive precursors found in the organ of Corti, and on critical genes for embryonic hair cell formation such as the cell cycle related proteins, the Atoh1 gene and the Notch signaling pathway. Expand
Inhibition of cyclin‐dependent kinases induces differentiation of supernumerary hair cells and Deiters' cells in the developing organ of Corti
TLDR
The results suggest that CDKs are involved in the normal development of the organ of Corti and that, at least in E19 embryos, inhibition ofCDKs is sufficient to trigger the differentiation of HCs and corresponding SCs, presumably from the Hensen's cell progenitor and/or from progenitors located in the greater epithelial ridge area.

Stem cells for the replacement of inner ear neurons and hair cells.
TLDR
The regrowth of these neurons suggests that it may be possible to replace auditory neurons that have degenerated with neurons that restore auditory function by regenerating connections to hair cells. Expand
New ectopic vestibular hair cell-like cells induced by Math1 gene transfer in postnatal rats
TLDR
The new ectopic vestibular hair cell-like cells induced by overexpression of Math1, were found to appear in the non-sensory region of the postnatal rats' Vestibular epithelia as observed in the cochlear, suggesting that the cells found could have the capability to differentiate into new hair cells. Expand
The role of Notch ligands in development of the inner ear
TLDR
Findings confirm that Notch signalling has two distinct functions in the inner ear, for which different ligands are primarily responsible. Expand
In vitro culture of mammalian inner ear hair cells
TLDR
The structure of the inner ear is explained, the published methods of in vitro hair cell cultures are summarized, and a feasible protocol for culturing these cells are proposed, which gave satisfactory results in this study. Expand
Hair cell progenitors: identification and regulatory genes
TLDR
This review will first highlight recent findings concerning the identification of progenitor cells that are able to proliferate and to differentiate into hair cells, and principal factors impinging on this process are reviewed. Expand
Inhibition of Notch/RBP-J signaling induces hair cell formation in neonate mouse cochleas
TLDR
It is shown that inhibition of Notch/RBP-J signaling, by either conditional disruption of the Rbpsuh gene or treatment with a γ-secretase inhibitor, could give rise to ectopic hair cells in the supporting cell region in organs of Corti from neonatal mouse cochleas where hair cells have been considered to regenerate after birth.

Supernumerary outer hair cells arise external to the last row of sensory cells in the organ of corti.
TLDR
It is proposed that prosensory cells located at the external edge of the organ of Corti retain a capacity to form hair cells and that it is these prosensORY cells that differentiate into supernumeraryhair cells and Deiters' cells. Expand
Epidermal growth factor upregulates production of supernumerary hair cells in neonatal rat organ of corti explants.
TLDR
Treatment of late embryonic and neonatal rat organ of Corti explants with an antimitotic drug, cytosine arabinoside (ARAc), demonstrated that the production of supernumerary hair cells occurred independently of cell division. Expand
The developing organ of Corti contains retinoic acid and forms supernumerary hair cells in response to exogenous retinoic acid in culture.
TLDR
It is suggested that retinoic acid is involved in the normal development of the organ of Corti and that the effect of retinic acid may be to induce a population of prosensory cells to become competent to differentiate as hair cells and supporting cells. Expand
Regeneration and mammalian auditory hair cells
TLDR
None of the labeled cells in their study could be identified as hair cells, which indicates that proliferation might not be the only process involved in the appearance of immature hair cells in the drug-damaged mammalian urtricles. Expand
p27(Kip1) links cell proliferation to morphogenesis in the developing organ of Corti.
TLDR
P27(Kip1) expression is induced in the primordial organ of Corti between E12 and E14, correlating with the cessation of cell division of the progenitors of the hair cells and supporting cells, providing a link between developmental control of cell proliferation and the morphological development of the inner ear.

Hair Cells and Supporting Cells Share a Common Progenitor in the Avian Inner Ear
TLDR
Clones containing one HC and one SC were observed, suggesting that a common progenitor exists that can remain bipotential up to its final mitotic division in the mature basilar papilla. Expand

TLDR
This chapter discusses the ultrastructure of the organ of Corti with special emphasis on mechanoreceptors and neural elements, which is specially designed to convert mechanical vibrations into electrical events which are transmitted to the central nervous system as coded messages. Expand
Hes1 and Hes5 Activities Are Required for the Normal Development of the Hair Cells in the Mammalian Inner Ear

R reverse transcription-PCR analysis indicates that Hes1 and Hes5 participate together for the control of inner ear hair cell production, likely through the negative regulation of Math1. Expand
