Retinal tissue from human eye donors was incubated with [3H]-labeled mannose, glucosamine, fucose, and leucine in the presence and absence of tunicamycin, a selective inhibitor of dolichol-dependent glycoprotein biosynthesis. The incorporation of labeled substrates was examined by quantitative light microscopic autoradiography and biochemical methods. [3H… CONTINUE READING
