Rod outer segment disk membranes have been used to study visual transduction events. Numerous studies have also focused on protein-lipid interactions in these membranes. The possible heterogeneity of the disk membrane composition has not been addressed in such studies. Freeze fracture studies (Andrews, L. D., and Cohn, A. I. (1979) J. Cell Biol. 81, 215-220; Caldwell, R., and McLaughlin, B. (1985) J. Comp. Neurol. 236, 523-537) suggest a difference in cholesterol content between newly formed… CONTINUE READING
