• at 11 weeks, male hemizygotes show pathological changes in the spiral ligament fibrocytes in all turns of the cochlea (J:57298)
• in contrast, middle-ear structures, flexibility of auditory ossicle junctions, and mobility of stapes footplates appear unaffected (J:57298)
• no pathological features in the inner and outer hair cells, stria vascularis, spiral ganglia or auditory nerve are observed (J:57298)

• no pathological features in the inner and outer hair cells, stria vascularis, spiral ganglia or auditory nerve are observed (J:57298)
• type I fibrocytes filling the area beneath the stria vascularis have few mitochondria while the surrounding extracellular matrix is extremely thin (J:57298)
• type I fibrocytes filling the area beneath the stria vascularis have few mitochondria while the surrounding extracellular matrix is extremely thin (J:57298)
