The effects of retinal detachment upon disk membrane assembly in rod outer segments were assessed in Xenopus laevis retinas that had been maintained in eyecup cultures for up to 4 days. In these cultures, assembly of disk membranes occurred at a normal rate in regions of the retina that remained attached to the retinal pigment epithelium. In regions of the retina that were detached from the pigment epithelium, the assembly of new disk membranes either was abnormal or was inhibited. This result… CONTINUE READING
