Signal transduction in hair cells and its regulation by calcium

Abstract

Ca2+ plays a pivotal role in the regulation of hair cell function. From ,mechanoelectrical transduction at the cell's apex to the release of neurotransmitter at its base, Ca*+ acts continuously to either effect or affect diverse cellular processes. The ability of Ca'+ to perform its various local tasks rests simply on the steep gradients in the activity of… (More)
