Although all bipolar cells in the retina probably use the excitatory transmitter glutamate, approximately half of the cone bipolar cells also contain elevated levels of the inhibitory transmitter glycine. Some types of cone bipolar cells make heterologous gap junctions with rod amacrine cells, which contain elevated levels of glycine, leading to the hypothesis that the bipolar cells obtain their glycine from amacrine cells. Experimental support for this hypothesis is now provided by three… CONTINUE READING
