The spiral ganglion accommodates the cell bodies of the acoustic nerve fibres connecting the hair cells to the central nervous system. As the ionic channels containing various voltage-gated K+ channel (Kv) subunits play pivotal roles in determining the functional properties and firing behaviour of the spiral ganglion cells (SGCs), every piece of information concerning the Kv expression of the SGCs is valuable. In the present work a comprehensive immunohistochemical analysis was performed to… CONTINUE READING
