Evidence for an Na+-K+-Cl-cotransporter in mammalian type I vestibular hair cells.


In amniotes, there are two types of hair cells, designated I and II, that differ in their morphology, innervation pattern, and ionic membrane properties. Type I cells are unique among hair cells in that their basolateral surfaces are almost completely enclosed by an afferent calyceal nerve terminal. Recently, several lines of evidence have ascribed a motile… (More)
