In the adult gerbil inner ear, hair cell microtubules contain predominantly tyrosinated tubulin while supporting cell microtubules contain almost exclusively other isoforms. This cell-type specific segregation of tubulin isoforms is unusual, and in this respect the sensory and supporting cells in this sensory organ differ from other cells observed both in… CONTINUE READING
