The structure of subrhabdomeric cisternae (SRC) and related structures in the photoreceptor cells (retinular cells) of Drosophila melanogaster in normal flies and visual mutants were compared by electron microscopic observation of semithin sections of osmium-impregnated specimens. The three-dimensional organization of SRC and the other cell organelles was demonstrated by stereoscopy. Both light- and dark-adapted normal retinular cells contained elaborate networks of anastomosing tubules of SRC… CONTINUE READING
