  • Specific sodium (Na alpha I, Na alpha III) and potassium (SK1, SK2, SK3) radioactive oligonucleotides were used to probe sections of rat vestibular and facial nuclei by in situ hybridization methods [8].
  • Following unilateral inner ear lesion in rats, the medial vestibular nuclei were probed with Na alpha I, Na alpha III, SK1, SK2 and SK3 oligonucleotide probes: autoradiography indicated no difference between the two sides, at any of the times studied [8].
