The connecting (sensory) cilium of rods and cones is the stalk that separates the outer segment, which contains visual pigment in stacks of membrane discs, from the inner segment, which contains cytoplasmic organelles involved in protein synthesis. There are conflicting reports on the occurrence of abnormal motile cilia in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and very few ultrastructural studies of photoreceptor connecting cilia in retinas from patients with RP. Defective connecting cilia… CONTINUE READING
