Abstract

We have presented evidence in previous papers showing that the degradation and renewal of photoreceptor membrane in larval mosquito ocelli is regulated by light. Mosquito rhabdomeres grow larger in darkness and smaller in light as the amount of membrane increases and decreases. The kinetics of rhabdomere growth and diminution indicate that these changes arise from variations in the rate of membrane turnover (1).
