Figure 2416

Transmission electron micrograph of the stria vascularis. The apical surfaces of the marginal cells (M) of the stria are bathed by endolymph (E) of the scala media. Intermediate cells (I) are positioned between the marginal cells and the basal cells (B). The basal cells separate the other cells of the stria vascularis from the spiral ligament (SpL). x4,700.
