The vibrations are transmitted to the basilar membrane (see diagram opposite) which in turn vibrates at a particular frequency, depending upon the position along its length {high frequencies vibrate the window end where the basilar membrane is narrow and thick, and low frequencies vibrate the apical end where the membrane is wide and thin}.
The basilar membrane is narrow and stiff at the window end and wide and flexible at the apical end.
The cilia of the hair cells, which contact the overlying tectorial membrane, bend as the basilar membrane vibrates, this opens ion channels and causes the entry of ions into the hair cell and a generator potential develops.

 CHEST: HTI56, An Integral Apical Membrane Protein of the Human Alveolar Type I Cell, Is a Biochemical Marker of Acute Lung Injury - )
We hypothesized that cell-specific alveolar epithelial apical plasma membrane proteins might be useful biochemical markers for lung injury.
We used a monoclonal antibody against HTI56, an apical integral membrane protein specific to human type I cells (Am J Respir Crit Care Med 1995; 151:A169), to develop a sensitive, quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for HTI56.
This hypothesis has been validated in various models of rodent lung injury, in which the airspace liquid content of RT140, a rat type I cell integral membrane protein, correlated directly with the extent of epithelial injury assessed by morphologic criteria (Am J Physiol 1995; 268:L181-186, and 1997., 272:L631-638).

Placement of the adherens junction is critical because it signals to the cell which side is out and which side is in, preventing the mixing of apical cell membrane tissue with the biochemically distinct basal cell membrane, and thereby assuring cell polarity.
Crumbs protein is essential for the biogenesis of the adherens junction and the establishment of apical polarity in ectodermally derived epithelial cells.
The junction is not spread randomly between the cells, but is found in a belt-like, zonular structure encircling the apical side of the cell.

 Checklist of the Collembola: Some notes on the Ultrastructure of the Cuticula
They concluded that the glycocalyx consists of two parts, an inner continuous layer which is tightly bound to the apical plasma membrane and is always preserved, and an outer filamentous layer which is not always preserved by the conventional method.
Glycocalyx glycoproteins are regularly replaced via biosynthesis in the ribosomes of the rough endoplasmic reticulum, followed by final assembly with the oligosaccharide moiety in the Golgi apparatus, that subsequently packs them into membrane bound secretion granules, that get integrated in the plasma membrane.
The plasma membrane exhibits a glycocalyx, consisting of carbohydrates anchored to the membrane bilayer.

 Chap VI
When sound energy is introduced into the inner ear, the resultant up-and-down motion of the basilar membrane produces shearing motion between the stereocilia projecting from the apical surfaces of hair cells and the tectorial membrane.
Because these auditory nerve fibers each innervate a single inner hair cell, and because the basilar membrane is itself tonotopically organized in a mechanical sense, the characteristic frequency of a nerve fiber is directly related to a location (or a 'place') along the basilar membrane.
Hermann von Helmholtz, a brilliant German physicist at the time viewed the basilar membrane in the inner ear as a series of mechanical resonators arranged like the strings of a harp, varying in tuning from high frequency at the base of the cochlea to low frequency at the apex.

 Enterocyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Glucose, from the intestinal lumen, crosses the apical membrane of the enterocyte using the Na+ dependent glucose transporter; moves through the cytosol and exits the enterocyte via the basolateral membrane (into the blood capillary) using GLUT-2.
Fructose, on the other hand, crosses the apical membrane of the enterocyte, using GLUT-5.
It is thought to cross into the blood capillary using one of the other GLUT transporters.

Although M2 was formed from purified seco-sirolimus (20 micromol/L) in the homogenates, it was not detected in cells when seco-sirolimus was added to the apical compartment because seco-sirolimus was essentially impermeable to the apical membrane.
Sirolimus, seco-sirolimus (basolaterally dosed), and M2 were all secreted across the apical membrane, and secretion of each was inhibited by the P-gp inhibitor LY335979 (zosuquidar trihydrochloride).
Along with CYP3A4-mediated metabolism and P-gp-mediated efflux, a novel elimination pathway was identified that may also contribute to the first-pass extraction,

The water channels are proteins that, when inserted in the apical membrane, allow water to pass through the membrane.
Marples, et al., after performing a series of experiments on toad bladders, report that the chemical, N-ethyl maleimide (NEM) also increases the flow of body water across the apical membrane.
It does not allow as much water as the VP-induced water flow, but both flows have a roughly similar pattern in terms of the time it takes for the water flow to increase.
