Mixed-rod cone bipolar (Mb) cells of goldfish retina have large synaptic terminals (10 μm in diameter) that make 60–90 ribbon synapses mostly onto amacrine cells and rarely onto ganglion cells and, in return, receive 300–400 synapses from gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic amacrine cells. Tissue viewed by electron microscopy revealed the presence of double-membrane-bound processes deep within Mb terminals. No membrane specializations were apparent on these invaginating processes, although… CONTINUE READING
