PURPOSE K+ channels in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) play a number of important roles, including the establishment of membrane potential, the transport of K+ between the subretinal space and choroid, and the generation of the c-wave of the electroretinogram. Previous studies on amphibian RPE demonstrated that these functions are likely served by an inwardly rectifying K+ channel. The aim of this study was to characterize inwardly rectifying K+ channels in cultured and freshly isolated… CONTINUE READING
