Evidence against the presence of an anandamide transporter
On the basis of temperature dependency, saturability, selective inhibition, and substrate specificity, it has been proposed that an anandamide transporter exists. However, all of these studies haveExpand

Targeted Destruction of Photosensitive Retinal Ganglion Cells with a Saporin Conjugate Alters the Effects of Light on Mouse Circadian Rhythms
Non-image related responses to light, such as the synchronization of circadian rhythms to the day/night cycle, are mediated by classical rod/cone photoreceptors and by a small subset of retinalExpand

Retinofugal projections in the mouse
The laboratory mouse is increasingly a subject for visual system investigation, but there has been no comprehensive evaluation of this species' visual projections. Here, projections were visualizedExpand

Diurnal changes in exocytosis and the number of synaptic ribbons at active zones of an ON-type bipolar cell terminal.
The number and morphology of synaptic ribbons at photoreceptor and bipolar cell terminals has been reported to change on a circadian cycle. Here we sought to determine whether this phenomenon existsExpand

Neurochemical anatomy of the zebrafish retina as determined by immunocytochemistry.
The zebrafish retina is rapidly becoming a major preparation for the study of molecular genetic mechanisms underlying neural development and visual behavior. Studies utilizing retinal mutants wouldExpand

GABA-like immunoreactivity in the vertebrate retina: a species comparison.
Rabbit antisera directed against gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) conjugated to bovine serum albumin was used to localize neurons containing GABA-like immunoreactivity in the retinas of nine speciesExpand

Immunocytochemical localization of cannabinoid CB1 receptor and fatty acid amide hydrolase in rat retina
Cannabinoids have major effects on central nervous system function. Recent studies indicate that cannabinoid effects on the visual system have a retinal component. Immunocytochemical methods wereExpand

Cannabinoid receptors on goldfish retinal bipolar cells: electron-microscope immunocytochemistry and whole-cell recordings.
Cannabinoid CB1 receptors are distributed throughout the CNS and interact with GABA, glutamate, and dopamine systems. Cannabinoids have effects on the visual system, some of which may have a retinalExpand

Voltage-Dependent Sodium Channels Are Expressed in Nonspiking Retinal Bipolar Neurons
Retinal bipolar neurons transmit visual information by means of graded synaptic potentials that spread to the synaptic terminal without sodium-dependent action potentials. Although action potentialsExpand

Light‐dependent plasticity of the synaptic terminals of Mb bipolar cells in goldfish retina
We recently described spine‐like protrusions (spinules) from the synaptic terminals of mixed rod‐cone (Mb) bipolar cells of goldfish retina that invaginated about 5% of the presynaptic amacrine cellExpand
