Effect of hair cell microRNAs on gene expression profiles of cultured mouse otic precursor cells
(Creighton University, 2011-10-17)
Hearing loss caused by environmental and genetic factors is exacerbated by the inability of mammalian auditory hair cells to spontaneously regenerate. Recent studies demonstrate that mechanosensitive hair cells can be ...
