Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

The hunt for molecules that conduct mechanoelectrical transduction in hair cells has recently intensified. A hair cell's transduction apparatus adapts to sustained stimuli, and myosin Iβ and myosin VIIA have been advanced as candidates for the motor that mediates this process. The identity of the transduction channel remains unknown, although a viable suggestion proposes that it belongs to the amiloride-sensitive Na+ channel family.
