The effect of ions on the light-sensitive current of isolated retinal rods from the toad Bufo marinus was studied by sucking the inner segment into a tightly fitting pipette. The outer segment projected into flowing solution whose composition could be changed rapidly. Reducing the external Na concentration, [Na]o, round the outer segment caused rapid and reversible reductions in the light-sensitive current. With the outer segment in the pipette, reductions of [Na]o round the inner segment had… CONTINUE READING
