Abstract

Aminoglycoside uptake in the inner ear remains poorly understood. We subcutaneously injected a fluorescently-conjugated aminoglycoside, gentamicin-Texas Red (GTTR), to investigate the in vivo uptake of GTTR in the inner ear of several vertebrates, and in various murine sensory cells using confocal microscopy. In bullfrogs, GTTR uptake was prominent in mature hair cells, but not in immature hair cells. Avian hair cells accrued GTTR more rapidly at the base of the basilar papilla. GTTR was associated with the hair bundle; and, in guinea pigs and mice, somatic GTTR fluorescence was initially diffuse before punctate (endosomal) fluorescence could be observed. A baso-apical gradient of intracellular GTTR uptake in guinea pig cochleae could only be detected at early time points (
