Nonlinear capacitance obtained from gPres- and fPres-transfected cells and a mouse OHC. (a) Confocal microscopy images of HEK cells transfected by gPres and fPres. (b) OHC patch. (c) Whole-cell currents of gPres- and fPres-transfected cells and OHC. Cells were held at -80 mV for current recordings. Voltage steps (300 ms in duration) varied from -150 to 100 mV in 10 mV steps. Black-gPres, red-fPres, blue-OHC. (d) NLC obtained from gPres- and fPres-transfected cells. Black-gPres, red-fPres. NLC obtained from the mouse OHC, blue curve. (e) This one showed the lack of detectable NLC in a representative control cell.
