The locations of mitochondria in mammalian photoreceptors: Relation to retinal vasculature

Stone, Jonathan; van Driel, D; Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina; Rees, Sandra; Provis, Jan


Adult mammalian photoreceptors are elongated cells, and their mitochondria are sequestered to the ends of the cell, to the inner segments and (in some species) to axon terminals in the outer plexiform layer (OPL). We hypothesised that mitochondria migrate to these locations towards sources of oxygen, from the choroid and (in some species) from the deep capillaries of the retinal circulation. Six mammalian species were surveyed, using electron and light microscopy, including immunohistochemistry...[Show more]
