The principal action of 2-amino-4-phosphonobutyrate (APB) applied to the retina is the elimination of the On-bipolar cell light response. In this study, we report that APB also has more subtle effects; it sometimes enhances Off responses of Off bipolar cells and On, Off, and On-Off inner retina neurons. Possible mechanisms for this enhancement are considered.
