A 175-kD mannose-specific receptor has been described in macrophages which appears to mediate pinocytosis and phagocytosis. A mannose-specific receptor has also been found on retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE). Its role was examined in the phagocytosis of photoreceptor outer segments (ROS) by the RPE. All testing was done on cultured RPE cells(More)
The apical membranes of retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) were isolated from adult, normal (LE), and dystrophic (RCS) rats. The proteins of these RPE subfractions were separated through the use of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The lectin-binding properties of glycoproteins were examined in western blots through the use of(More)
