Double cones of tench and goldfish retina are characterized by extensive subsurface cisternae underlying the plasma membranes at the appositional area between the principal and accessory cone. Such a membrane system is absent in double cones of turtle and salamander retina. Measurements on both transverse and longitudinal sections gave a total appositional area of about 75 square microns, the subsurface cisterna in each element of the double cone being around 8-10% smaller due to multiple… CONTINUE READING
