FM 1-43 penetrates rapidly into IHCs.

Abstract

<p>(<b>A</b>) Scheme of the organ of Corti, indicating the areas of the IHCs that were imaged. (<b>B</b>) FM 1-43 (10 µM) labeling of IHCs was imaged at room temperature at four cellular levels: stereocilia bundle, top, nuclear and basal. FM 1-43 reaches the cytoplasm, diffusing in an apex-to-base fashion (right panel). This observation is typical for 16 independent experiments.</p
