Reissner's membrane epithelium forms much of the barrier that produces and sustains the large ionic differences between cochlear endolymph and perilymph. We have reported that Reissner's membrane contributes to normal cochlear function by absorbing Na(+) from endolymph via amiloride-sensitive channels in gerbil inner ear. We used mouse Reissner's membrane… CONTINUE READING
