High impact information on Spiral Lamina

  • It was found that, in human cochlea, CGRP immunoreactivity was located in unmyelinated nerve fibres of the spiral lamina, inner spiral fibres beneath inner hair cells, tunnel spiral fibres, tunnel crossing fibres and outer radial fibres [1].
  • Otor and Col2A1 are coexpressed in the cartilaginous plates of the neural and abneural limbs of the chicken cochlea, structures analogous to the mammalian spiral limbus, osseous spiral lamina, and spiral ligament, and not in any other tissues in head and body sections [2].
  • In the spiral lamina, tenascin-C coexists in a region where nerve bundles arborize [3].
  • In contrast, there was no statistical difference between the norepinephrine content of the organ of Corti--osseous spiral lamina region of the pigmented rat and that of the albino rat [4].
  • We also further describe the organization of TH-positive fibers in the osseous spiral lamina [5].
