This paper summarizes our findings on light-evoked changes in retinal pigment epithelial cell (RPE) membrane potentials. Experiments were performed on the eye of the anesthetized or decerebrate cat and on isolated tissues from the eyes of a lizard, Gekko gekko, and a frog, Rana catesbeiana. In cat, as was previously shown, the RPE apical membrane potential responds to changes in [K+]0 in the subretinal space. At the onset of illumination it hyperpolarizes to a peak at 4.0 sec as [K+]0 decreases… CONTINUE READING
