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 and AII cells, are the postsynaptic partners. We examined the glutamate receptors (GluRs) that are expressed by AI and AII cells using immunocytochemistry with specific antibodies against GluR subunits. Sections of macaque monkey and rabbit retina were examined by confocal microscopy. AII amacrine cells… CONTINUE READING
