Inverted photocurrent responses from amphibian rod photoreceptors: role of membrane voltage in response recovery

Jarvinen, Jaakko; Lamb, Trevor


We recorded photocurrent responses of retinal rods isolated from cane toads Bufo marinus and clawed frogs Xenopus laevis. With the outer segment drawn part way into the suction pipette, presentation of flashes to the base of the outer segment (outside the pipette) elicited a slow inverted response. Stimulation of the same region, with the outer segment drawn fully in, gave a response of conventional polarity. For moderate to bright flashes a fast transient preceded the slow inverted response....[Show more]
