The heavy metal mercury (Hg + ) is an insidious environmental pollutant that causes toxic effects on sensory systems. It is well known that the group IIB divalent cation Hg + is an inhibitor of the group I monovalent potassium (K + ) cation pore-forming channel in several biological preparations. Here, we used the whole cell patch clamp technique on freshly isolated outer hair cells (OHCs) of the guinea pig cochlea to record outward K + currents and inward K + currents treated with mercuric… CONTINUE READING
