Patterns of interdisk connections within the lamellar domains of retinal rod outer segment disks: observations relevant to the axial propagation of incisures.

Abstract

In rod outer segments (ROSs) of the Congo eel salamander (Amphiuma), we have observed a system of cytoplasmic filaments that interconnect the lamellar domains of adjacent disks. In longitudinal sections, these filaments occur in pairs, spaced 18-20 nm apart. Each filament is 9-11 nm in length, and perpendicular to the disk membrane. Such filament pairs… (More)
