We have measured the sensitivity of rod photoreceptors isolated from overnight dark-adapted mice of age P12 (neonate) through P45 (adult) with suction-pipette recording. During this age period, the dark current increased roughly in direct proportion to the length of the rod outer segment. In the same period, the flash sensitivity of rods (reciprocal of the half-saturating flash intensity) increased by approximately 1.5-fold. This slight developmental change in sensitivity was not accentuated by… CONTINUE READING
