Aspects of Choline Metabolism in Photoreceptor Cells

  • Richard H. Masland
  • John W. Mills

Abstract

Elegant experiments by many investigators have described the photoreceptor cell’s structural renewal, in which the outer segment is partially shed and replaced in a cyclic daily rhythmn (9, 10, 12, 13, 23, 24, 25). It seems certain that the resynthesis of such a specialized structure requires supporting adaptations by the cell.
