Lead (Pb2+) modulation of potassium currents of guinea pig outer hair cells.

Abstract

Outer hair cells (OHC) are mechanosensitive sensory cells of the inner ear cochlea and are involved in modulating the activity of inner hair cells in the transduction of an acoustic stimulus. Potassium (K(+)) currents play an important role in the sensory transduction process. K(+) currents were recorded from acutely dissociated OHC obtained from the guinea… (More)
