Immunocytochemical analysis of the mouse retina
Transgenic mice provide a new approach for studying the structure and function of the mammalian retina. In the past, the cellular organization of the mammalian retina was investigated preferentiallyExpand

Cone Contacts, Mosaics, and Territories of Bipolar Cells in the Mouse Retina
We report a quantitative analysis of the different bipolar cell types of the mouse retina. They were identified in wild-type mice by specific antibodies or in transgenic mouse lines by specificExpand

Types of bipolar cells in the mouse retina
We studied the morphology of bipolar cells in fixed vertical tissue sections (slices) of the mouse retina by injecting the cells with Lucifer Yellow and Neurobiotin. Nine different cone bipolar cellExpand

Retinal bipolar cells: elementary building blocks of vision
Retinal bipolar cells are the first 'projection neurons' of the vertebrate visual system — all of the information needed for vision is relayed by this intraretinal connection. Each of the at least 13Expand

The Primordial, Blue-Cone Color System of the Mouse Retina
Humans and old world primates have trichromatic color vision based on three spectral types of cone [long-wavelength (L-), middle-wavelength (M-), and short-wavelength (S-) cones]. All other placentalExpand

Immunocytochemical description of five bipolar cell types of the mouse retina
With the ever‐growing number of transgenic mice being used in vision research, a precise knowledge of the cellular organization of the mouse retina is required. As with the cat, rabbit, rat, andExpand

The Cone Pedicle, a Complex Synapse in the Retina
Cone pedicles, the synaptic terminals of cone photoreceptors, are connected in the macaque monkey retina to several hundred postsynaptic dendrites. Using light and electron microscopy, we foundExpand

The gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor (GABAAR)-associated protein GABARAP interacts with gephyrin but is not involved in receptor anchoring at the synapse.
gamma-Aminobutyric acid type A receptors (GABA(A)Rs) are ligand-gated chloride channels that exist in numerous distinct subunit combinations. At postsynaptic membrane specializations, differentExpand

HCN channels are expressed differentially in retinal bipolar cells and concentrated at synaptic terminals
Hyperpolarization‐activated and cyclic nucleotide‐gated (HCN) channels codetermine the integrative behaviour of neurons and shape their response to synaptic stimulation. We used immunohistochemistryExpand

Glutamate Receptors in the Rod Pathway of the Mammalian Retina
Rod bipolar (RB) cells of the mammalian retina release glutamate in a graded, light-dependent fashion from 20 to 40 ribbon synapses (dyads). At the dyads, two classes of amacrine cells, the AI andExpand
