The pineal complex of river lamprey reacted with the antisera raised against retina specific proteins including bovine opsin, chick visinin and frog light-sensitive cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase (PDE). Immunoreactive materials stained with anti-opsin were evenly located at the outer segment of photoreceptor cells in the pineal organ and also found in the parapineal organ. Although anti-visinin stained the pineal and parapineal photoreceptor cells, the immunopositive photoreceptor cells were… CONTINUE READING
