    • Glutamate Transporters EAAT4 and EAAT5 Are Expressed in Vestibular Hair Cells and Calyx Endings 

      Dalet, Antoine; Bonsacquet, Jeremie; Gaboyard-Niay, Sophie; Calin-Jageman, Irina; Chidavaenzi, Robstein L.; Venteo, Stephanie; Desmadryl, Gilles; Goldberg, Jay M.; Lysakowski, Anna; Chabbert, Christian (Public Library of Science, 2012-09)
      Glutamate is the neurotransmitter released from hair cells. Its clearance from the synaptic cleft can shape neurotransmission and prevent excitotoxicity. This may be particularly important in the inner ear and in other ...
    • Molecular Microdomains in a Sensory Terminal, the Vestibular Calyx Ending 

      Lysakowski, Anna; Gaboyard-Niay, Sophie; Calin-Jageman, Irina; Chatlani, Shilpa; Price, Steven D.; Eatock, Ruth Anne (Society for Neuroscience, 2011-07-06)
      Many primary vestibular afferents form large cup-shaped postsynaptic terminals (calyces) that envelope the basolateral surfaces of type I hair cells. The calyceal terminals both respond to glutamate released from ribbon ...
