The composition and amount of vitamin A stored in the retinal pigment epithelium and choroid (RPE-Ch) was evaluated in postmortem donor eyes from a patient with retinitis pigmentosa that was probably inherited by an autosomal recessive mode. Additionally, the soluble proteins in the neural retina and RPE-Ch cytosols and interphotoreceptor matrix were examined collectively for the presence of interstitial retinol-binding protein (IRBP). Although there was depletion of the amount of vitamin A… CONTINUE READING
