In the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of lower vertebrates, melanin pigment granules migrate in and out of the cells' long apical projections in response to changes in light condition. When the RPE is in its normal association with the retina, light onset induces pigment granules to disperse into the apical projections; dark onset induces pigment granules to aggregate into the cell bodies. However, when the RPE is separated from the retina, pigment granule movement in the isolated RPE is… CONTINUE READING
