Surfaces of Rod Photoreceptor


The light-activated GTP-binding protein (GBP) in toad rod outer segments has been located on the cytoplasmic surface (CS) of rod disk membranes by correlating biochemical results with images of quick-frozen, freeze-fractured, and deep-etched rod outer segments. This has been accomplished by selectively removing and replacing the 8-12-nm particles that are… (More)
