We used immunocytochemistry to locate two calcium binding proteins, calbindin (CaB) and parvalbumin (PV), in the retina of goldfish, frog, chick, rat, guinea pig, dog, and man. The location of CaB depended on the type of dominant photoreceptor cells in birds and mammals. In cone-dominant retinas such as those of the chick, CaB-like immunoreactivity was found in the cones, cone bipolars, and ganglion cells. Amacrine cells 5-12 microns across were also labeled. In rod-dominant retinas, such as… CONTINUE READING
