Krox-20 conducts the Schwann song


ike explorers spotting an uncharted island on the horizon, Imanishi et al. (page 373) have identified a previously unknown cellular structure that could be an entirely new organelle. The structure, located in cells of the retinal pigment epithelium, appears to be an essential waypoint in the retinoid cycle—the series of chemical reactions that regenerates 11cis -retinal, the chromophore for rhodopsin, after light converts it to alltrans -retinal. Isolated retinas do not survive long outside of the eye, complicating studies of retinal biology. The authors circumvented this problem L
