Blood flow and uptake of two nutrient analogues have been studied in the neural retina, pigment epithelium and optic lobes of 5-7-day-old chicks after systemic administration of isotopically labeled compounds. The pigment epithelium accumulated the inert amino acid, alpha-aminoisobutyric acid, 6 times as effectively on a wet weight basis than did the neural(More)
Membranes prepared from the retinal pigment epithelium of several species possess a specific site which binds [3H]strychnine. This binding has a somewhat lower affinity and a much greater density than the corresponding interaction in the hindbrain or neural retina. Binding is not greatly altered in the presence of 10(-3) M glycine, L-alanine, beta-alanine,(More)
