Abstract: Measurements of volume and length were made on isolated guinea pig cochlear outer hair cells (OHCs) in an attempt to establish whether OHC shortening was accompanied by changes in cell volume. A sustained shortening in response to an isotonic 100 mM KCl solution was found to be accompanied by a significant increase in OHC volume. The application of hypotonic solutions had a similar effect. When testing solutions with unchanged or reduced [K+] [Cl-] products in order to avoid loading the cells with chloride ion…
