High impact information on rdx

  • When used in immunocytochemical studies of isolated hair cells, anti-radixin produced an intense band of labeling at the bases of hair bundles from the chicken, frog, mouse, and zebrafish [1].
  • Radixin is thus a prominent constituent of stereocilia, where it may participate in anchoring the "pointed" ends of actin filaments to the membrane [1].

Anatomical context of rdx


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of rdx

  • Electron microscopic immunocytochemistry disclosed that radixin labeling commenced in the stereociliary taper, peaked in the lower stereociliary shaft, and declined progressively toward the hair bundle's top [1].
