Association of myosin with the connecting cilium of rod photoreceptors.

Abstract

The cilium of a vertebrate photoreceptor cell connects the phototransductive outer segment of the cell to the inner segment. Previous studies have shown that, within the connecting cilium, there is a small cluster of actin filaments, which play a critical role in the formation of new disk membranes. Here, we have detected a polypeptide in rat rod outer… (More)
