Term Detail
MP term:abnormal strial intermediate cell morphology
Synonym: abnormal cochlear melanocytes
Synonym: abnormal otic melanocytes
Synonym: abnormal strial intermediate cells
Synonym: abnormal strial melanocytes
Synonym: abnormal stria vascularis intermediate cells
Synonym: abnormal stria vascularis melanocytes
MP id: MP:0004367
Definition: any structural anomaly in the melanocytes known to migrate from the neural crest during ontogeny to become located between the epithelial marginal cell layer and the mesodermal basal cell layer within the intrastrial space; the predominant cellular component of the electrogenic machinery that generates an endocochlear potential (80-100 mV)
