Anatomical context of Basilar Membrane


Associations of Basilar Membrane with chemical compounds

  • The characteristics of the high-affinity L-aspartate transporter are consistent with its operation at the basilar membrane for the transport of circulating aspartate into the cell [10].
  • Immunohistochemical localization of keratan sulfate and chondroitin 4- and 6-sulfate proteoglycans in subregions of the tectorial and basilar membranes [11].
  • Retinyl esters were found in the basilar membrane at a concentration of 11.4 +/- 5.9 micrograms/g dry weight, a high concentration compared with that in other tissues of other organs [6].
  • In the spiral ligament, basilar membrane and spiral limbus, no significant difference in PEI distribution was observed between the control and noise-exposed animals [12].
  • Radiographic analyses found that the Contour array lay closer to the modiolus, was more deeply inserted and spanned a larger fractional length of the basilar membrane than the straight banded-electrode array [13].
