Intravascularly applied K(+)-channel blockers suppress differently the positive endocochlear potential maintained by vascular perfusion.
Hear Res. 1996 Nov 01; 101(1-2):181-5.HR

Abstract

We studied the effects of several K+ channel blockers on the positive endocochlear potential (EP) of guinea pigs undergoing perfusion via the anterior inferior cerebellar artery. The EP level was reversibly suppressed by 50-60% in the presence of Ba2+ (2 mM), quinine (2 mM) or verapamil (1 mM) in the perfusate, but not significantly affected by tetraethylammonium (20 mM) or 4-aminopyridine (5 mM). Although the effective site(s) of these blockers at the cell level has not been located yet, these findings indicate an important role for a K+ conductance in the generation of the EP.
