Glycoconjugates, including glycolipids, glycoproteins, and proteoglycans, are present in the plasma membrane of photoreceptor cells and in the interphotoreceptor matrix surrounding photoreceptor cell ellipsoids and outer segments. Although the precise function of these molecules is unknown, they may be important in mediating photoreceptor-pigment epithelial cell interactions, outer segment membrane assembly, and/or disc shedding. Lectins, affinity ligands for defined carbohydrate sequences… CONTINUE READING
