- Hair cell regeneration in sensory epithelia from the inner ear of a urodele amphibianRuth R Taylor
UCL Centre for Auditory Research, University College London, London WC1X 8EE, United Kingdom
J Comp Neurol 484:105-20. 2005..A similar mechanism has been proposed for the hair cell recovery phenomenon observed in the vestibular organs of mammals...
- Defining the cellular environment in the organ of Corti following extensive hair cell loss: a basis for future sensory cell replacement in the CochleaRuth R Taylor
Centre for Auditory Research, The Ear Institute, University College London, London, United Kingdom
PLoS ONE 7:e30577. 2012..For any cell replacement strategy to be successful, the cellular environment of the injured tissue has to be able to nurture new hair cells. This study defines characteristics of the auditory sensory epithelium after hair cell loss...
- Rapid hair cell loss: a mouse model for cochlear lesionsRuth Rebecca Taylor
Centre for Auditory Research, UCL Ear Institute, University College London, 332 Gray s Inn Road, London, WC1X 8EE, UK
J Assoc Res Otolaryngol 9:44-64. 2008..This in vivo protocol provides a robust model in which to obtain extensive OHC loss in the mature cochleae of mice and is a means with which to examine different aspects of cochlear pathology in transgenic or mutant strains...
- MicroRNAs and regeneration: Let-7 members as potential regulators of dedifferentiation in lens and inner ear hair cell regeneration of the adult newtPanagiotis A Tsonis
Department of Biology and Center for Tissue Regeneration and Engineering, University of Dayton, Dayton, OH 45469 2320, USA
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 362:940-5. 2007..This is the first report to correlate expression of miRNAs as novel regulators of vertebrate regeneration, alluding to a novel mechanism whereby transdifferentiation occurs...
