Characterization of rod outer segment plasma membrane proteins which bind to the mannose receptor.

Previous work by our laboratory has demonstrated that rod outer segment (ROS) phagocytosis can be mediated by mannose-receptor dependent activity. This study was designed to probe for potential ligands on the ROS surface which could interact with the mannose receptor during the phagocytic cycle. Solubilized ROS plasma membranes were passed over a mannose… CONTINUE READING
