The ridge consists of six rows of hair cells. All hair cells of a row are morphologically similar to each other, but the rows are not identical.
Combining this new knowledge about Lgr5-expressing cells with the previous finding that Notch inhibition can regenerate hair cells will allow the scientists to design new hair cell regeneration strategies to treat hearing loss and deafness.
Abortive synaptogenesis as a factor in the inner hair cell degeneration in the Bronx Waltzer (bv) mutant mouse.
"After covering the hair cell with a synthetic cupula, our bio-inspired microsensor had the ability to detect flow better than the blind fish," Tsukruk said.
NF-kappaB pathway protects cochlear hair cells from aminoglycoside-induced ototoxicity.
Most cochlear hair cells have multiple auditory nerve fibers attached to them, and there is evidence for differences in the size of the synaptic endings of these neurons.
For years, scientists worldwide have been searching for ways to regenerate functioning hair cells. The UM team credits its success to the advances made by others in gene delivery systems and in understanding the molecular mechanism that controls hair cell development.

Finally, each hair cell sends a message to the brain that indicates the sound that you hear.
And intense sound waves from hazardous noise levels can destroy hair cells in the inner ear (see p.
