PURPOSE To elucidate the origins of biologically active retinal lipofuscin (RLF) by examining its protein composition. METHODS Total protein and total lipid were extracted and quantified. Proteins in this lipoprotein granule were identified by limited-scale proteomic analysis using both two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis and SDS-PAGE coupled with(More)
PURPOSE Melanolipofuscin (MLF) is a complex granule, exhibiting properties of both melanosomes and lipofuscin (LF) granules, which accumulates in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells and may contribute to the etiology of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). MLF accumulation has been reported by Feeney-Burns to more closely reflect the onset of AMD than(More)
Ligand-gated ion channels underlie synaptic communication in the nervous system(1). In mammals there are three families of ligand-gated channels: the cys loop, the glutamate-gated and the P2X receptor channel family(2). In each case binding of transmitter leads to the opening of a pore through which ions flow down their electrochemical gradients. Many(More)
Chlordane is a polychlorinated hydrocarbon that causes liver enlargement and induces mixed-function oxidases similar to those induced by phenobarbitone in the mouse. We have assessed the hepatocarcinogenicity (after 2 years) and the time course (over 6 months) of liver and thyroid cell proliferation in C57Bl/10J mice exposed to chlordane at 50 ppm in the(More)
