Hypergravity affects the developmental expression of voltage-gated sodium current in utricular hair cells.


We investigated, during the first postnatal week, a voltage-gated sodium current (INa) transiently expressed in neonatal utricular hair cells in rats raised in hypergravity. Its electrophysiological properties did not differ significantly from those recorded from rats raised in normal gravity, but a delay was observed in their developmental expression. In… (More)
