Abstruse

Retinal photoreceptor cells contain a specialized outer segment (Bone) compartment that functions in the capture of light and its conversion into electrical signals in a process known as phototransduction. In rods, photoisomerization of 11-cis
to all-trans
retinal within rhodopsin triggers a biochemical cascade culminating in the closure of cGMP-gated channels and hyperpolarization of the cell. Biochemical reactions return the cell to its ‘nighttime state’ and the visual cycle converts all-trans
retinal dorsum to eleven-cis
retinal for rhodopsin regeneration. OS are continuously renewed, with aged membrane removed at the distal end past phagocytosis and new membrane added at the proximal stop through Bone disk morphogenesis linked to poly peptide trafficking. The molecular basis for disk morphogenesis remains to be divers in detail although several models take been proposed, and molecular mechanisms underlying protein trafficking are under agile investigation. The aim of this Jail cell Science at a Glance article and the accompanying poster is to highlight our electric current understanding of photoreceptor construction, phototransduction, the visual bicycle, OS renewal, protein trafficking and retinal degenerative diseases.

Introduction

Rod and cone photoreceptors are specialized neurons that part in the initial stride of vision. These lite-sensitive cells lie at the dorsum of the retina adjacent to the retinal paint epithelium (RPE), a cell layer that is vital for the survival of photoreceptors. Rod cells are highly sensitive to light and operate under dim lighting conditions. Cone cells function under ambient and brilliant lighting conditions, exhibit rapid responses to variations in calorie-free intensity, and are responsible for color vision and high visual acuity. The human retina contains 120 million rod cells and 6 one thousand thousand cone cells, with the latter concentrated in the fundamental or macula region of the retina.

Both rods and cones are highly compartmentalized in structure and office. They consist of five primary regions: outer segment (Os), connecting cilium (CC), inner segment (IS), nuclear region and synaptic region (see poster). The Bone functions in the capture of low-cal and its conversion into electrical signals in a process known every bit phototransduction. The CC connects the OS with the IS, allowing for the trafficking of specific proteins to the OS. The IS contains the metabolic and biosynthetic machinery of the cell including the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi complex, lysosomes and other subcellular organelles. The nuclear region is continuous with the inner segment and houses the nucleus. The photoreceptor finally terminates in the synaptic region, which consists of synaptic vesicles and a ribbon synapse for transmission of the neurotransmitter glutamate from photoreceptors to bipolar cells and other secondary neurons.

The Bone of rod photoreceptors has been the focus of numerous molecular, cellular, biochemical and physiological studies attributable to its unique construction, accessibility, ease of isolation, and importance in the visual response, membrane renewal and retinal diseases. In this Prison cell Science at a Glance commodity and poster, we provide an overview of our current understanding of the molecular and cellular organization of photoreceptors with emphasis on the mechanisms underlying phototransduction, the visual bicycle, Os structure and morphogenesis, and poly peptide trafficking. We also highlight key proteins that have been associated with retinal degenerative diseases.

Structural arrangement and protein composition of the rod Bone

The Os of the rod cell is a cylindrical construction consisting of a plasma membrane (PM) that encloses an ordered stack of over 1000 closely spaced disks. The length and diameter of the Os varies for different vertebrates. Mammalian rod Bone typically have a length of 20–thirty µm and a diameter of i.2–ii.0 µm (Gilliam et al., 2012; Nickell et al., 2007). Each deejay is a airtight structure and consists of 2 flattened membranes that are confining by a hairpin rim region (see affiche). The photopigment rhodopsin, which comprises >85% of the disk membrane protein, is arranged in the form of higher-order oligomers in the disk lamellae at a density of >25,000 rhodopsin molecules/µmtwo
(Fotiadis et al., 2003; Gunkel et al., 2015; Liebman and Entine, 1974). The disk rim contains a number of specialized membrane proteins, the Per2–Rom1 complex consisting of the ii tetraspanin membrane proteins Per2 (likewise known as PRPH2) and Rom1 that generate the highly curved disk rim (Clarke et al., 2000; Goldberg and Molday, 1996; Kevany et al., 2013; Khattree et al., 2013), the retinal-specific ATP-bounden cassette transporter ABCA4 that facilitates the clearance of retinoids from disk membranes (Illing et al., 1997; Molday et al., 2009; Quazi and Molday, 2014; Sun et al., 1999; Weng et al., 1999), and members of the guanylate cyclase family GC-one and GC-2 (also known as GUCY2D and GUCY2F respectively) that catalyze the synthesis of circadian guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) from GTP (Karan et al., 2010, 2011; Nemet et al., 2015; Yang et al., 1995) (see poster). Per2 is most crucial for OS biogenesis and structure considering deficiency in Per2, as found in
rds
mice, results in the absence of rod and cone Os (Arikawa et al., 1992; Connell et al., 1991; Sanyal and Jansen, 1981; Travis et al., 1989), and mutations in the factor encoding Per2 cause autosomal-ascendant retinitis pigmentosa (ADRP) and macular dystrophy in humans (Farrar et al., 1991; Kajiwara et al., 1994, 1991; Wells et al., 1993). Proteomic analysis and biochemical studies have further shown that disk membranes also comprise R9AP (also known as RGS9BP), which anchors the GAP complex RGS9 and the long splice isoform of the blazon 5 G protein β subunit (Gβ5) (RGS9–Gβ5) to the disk membrane, the ATP8A2–CDC50A (likewise known as TMEM30A) complex that functions equally a phospholipid flippase, and progressive rod-cone degeneration protein (PRCD), a pocket-sized protein of unknown function that is associated with progressive rod–cone degeneration (Coleman et al., 2009; Kwok et al., 2008; Skiba et al., 2013). Disks also incorporate membrane-associated proteins, including the trimeric G-protein transducin, phosphodiesterase (PDE6), which is composed of 2 big catalytic subunits (PDE6A and PDE6B) and two regulatory subunits (PDE6C), and retinol dehydrogenase 8 (RDH8). Glutamic-acrid-rich proteins (GARPs) associate with the Per2 homotetramers and Per2–Rom1 heterotetramers at the rim region of disk membranes (Körschen et al., 1999; Poetsch et al., 2001) (see affiche). The PM of rod OS contains substantial amounts of rhodopsin (Molday and Molday, 1987; Nemet et al., 2015) every bit well as the cyclic-nucleotide-gated (CNG) aqueduct that consists of iii CNGA1 and ane CNGB1 subunits, with the latter harboring an Due north-final GARP domain, and the Na+–Ca2+–K+
exchanger (NCKX1, also known as SLC24A1) (Colville and Molday, 1996; Melt et al., 1989; Kaupp and Seifert, 2002; Reid et al., 1990; Zhong et al., 2002). The CNG aqueduct forms a complex with NCKX1 in the PM (Bauer and Drechsler, 1992; Molday and Molday, 1998) (see poster). Thin filaments accept been observed by using electron microscopy (EM) betwixt disks and betwixt the disk and PM (Roof and Heuser, 1982). Protein-protein interactions between the CNGB1 subunit of the CNG channel in the PM and Per2–Rom1 complex in the rim region of the disks are important in maintaining the arrangement of the rod OS and might represent the thin filaments observed by EM (Gilliam et al., 2012; Poetsch et al., 2001; Ritter et al., 2011; Zhang et al., 2009) (see affiche). The proximity of the CNG channel–NCKX1 complex to other cardinal phototransduction proteins such as PDE6, GCs, GCAP (guanylate-cyclase-activating protein 1) has been proposed to enhance the efficiency of phototransduction (Körschen et al., 1999; Nemet et al., 2015). Contempo studies have as well shown that a subset of CNG channels interact with the erythrocyte membrane protein ring 4.1 (also known as EPB41), although the importance of this interaction remains to exist investigated (Cheng and Molday, 2013). Cone photoreceptors have a similar structural organisation, although the disks are continuous with the PM and the OS most often is of conical shape (Mustafi et al., 2009). The genes encoding some proteins, such as Per2, Rom1, GC-ane, ABCA4, RDH8, RGS9, Gβ5, R9AP (i.e. RGS9–Gβ5–R9AP) and PRCD, are expressed in both rods and cones, whereas others, including those encoding opsins, CNG channels, NCKXs, PDEs and transducins, are encoded past homologous genes expressed in either rods or cones.

Phototransduction

Phototransduction in rods is initiated when light isomerizes the 11-cis-retinal chromophore of rhodopsin to its all-trans
isomer that induces a conformational change (Arshavsky and Burns, 2012; Lamb and Pugh, 2006; Luo et al., 2008; Palczewski, 2014). The activated form of rhodopsin R* (also known equally metarhodopsin Two) catalyzes the exchange of Gdp for GTP on the α-subunit of the trimeric G-protein transducin (comprising subunits α, β and γ; see poster). The α-subunit of transducin with its bound GTP dissociates from the βγ subunits and activates PDE6, a complex of one PDE6A, ane PDE6B and two PDE6G subunits, leading to the hydrolysis of cGMP. Reduction in intracellular cGMP results in the closure of CNG channels within the PM and cessation of Na+
and Catwo+
influx, hyperpolarization of the rod cell and inhibition of glutamate release at the photoreceptor synapse. The closure of CNG channels also results in a decrease in intracellular Ca2+
levels to below 50 nM as NCKX1 continues to efflux Catwo+
from the Os. Quantitative studies point that photoisomerization of a unmarried rhodopsin molecule results in the activation of 16 transducin proteins in mouse rods and of threescore in frog rods (Arshavsky and Burns, 2014). Further amplification is realized through PDE6-catalyzed hydrolysis of 2000 and 72,000 cGMP molecules in mouse and frog, respectively.

The photoreceptor cell is returned to its dark state through a series of biochemical reactions (Lamb and Pugh, 2006; Pugh and Lamb, 1993) (see affiche). Rhodopsin is phosphorylated past Thou-poly peptide-coupled receptor kinase (GRK1) and inactivated following the binding of arrestin (Burns et al., 2006; Chen et al., 2012; Gurevich et al., 2011; Wilden et al., 1986). PDE6 is returned to its dark inactive state through the hydrolysis of GTP on the α-subunit of transducin, a reaction that is facilitated past the GTPase-activating protein (GAP) RGS9 (Arshavsky and Wensel, 2013). Circadian GMP levels are re-established post-obit the activation of GC through the Ca2+
sensors guanylate-cyclase-activating proteins (GCAPs) (Baehr and Palczewski, 2007). When cGMP levels ascension, CNG channels open and return the photoreceptor to its dark, partially depolarized state. The ubiquitous Ca2+
sensor calmodulin (CaM) modulates the sensitivity of the channel for cGMP (Hsu and Molday, 1993). Phototransduction in cones occurs through a similar mechanism. Finally, for the regeneration of rhodopsin, all-trans
retinal has to be converted dorsum to 11-cis
retinal. This occurs through a series of biochemical reactions known as the visual or retinoid cycle, which take identify in both rod Bone and RPE cells (Kiser et al., 2014; Saari, 2012).

Mutations inside most of the phototransduction proteins have been associated with retinal diseases. Mutations in the genes encoding rhodopsin, CNGA1, CNGB1, PDE6A or PD6B cause retinitis pigmentosa (RP), whereas mutations in the genes encoding arrestin, rhodopsin kinase or NCKX1 cause built stationary dark blindness (CSNB). Furthermore, mutations in the genes encoding cone CNG channel subunits CNGA3 and CNGB3, cone PDEH or cone transducin (GNAT2) requite rise to achromatopsia, and mutations in the genes encoding in GC-1 have been linked to Leber built amaurosis (LCA) and cone–rod dystrophy (CRD) (see Box 1 and table within the poster).

Box 1. Inherited retinal diseases

Inherited retinal diseases are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous grouping of disorders that constitute a main cause of blindness in the world (Bramall et al., 2010; Veleri et al., 2015). These disorders are typically characterized past the progressive loss in vision resulting from mutations of genes encoding proteins that are essential for photoreceptor development, function or survival. Over 238 disease-linked genes take now been identified (http://www.sph.uth.tmc.edu/Retnet/). The ii principal types of retinal degenerative disease (RDD) are retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and macular degeneration (MD). RP, with a prevalence of 1 in 3500 people is typically characterized past the initial loss in night and peripheral vision due to the degeneration of rods, followed by loss in cone-mediated key vision that often leads to full blindness. RP can be inherited as an autosomal-ascendant (AD) RP, autosomal-recessive (AR) RP or X-linked (Xl) RP trait with ADRP accounting for xxx-twoscore% of the cases, ARRP for 50-60% and XLRP for 5-xv% (Hartong et al., 2006). RP can be associated with other disorders, such as hearing loss (Ushers syndrome) and cognitive impairment, polydactylism, hypogenitalism, obesity and renal affliction (Bardet-Biedl syndrome). Physician is typically associated with loss in central vision with variable preservation of peripheral vision. Inherited forms of Md, often chosen macular dystrophies, are divided into subgroups on the basis of their clinical characteristics. Examples include Stargardt macular degeneration, Best disease, Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy, Sorsby fundus dystrophy, Bull’s eye maculopathy, and X-linked retinoschisis. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of vision loss in the elderly. Although not considered an inherited RDD, genetic variants that encode complement factors and other proteins are known to increment 1’s risk of acquiring AMD (Fritsche et al., 2014). Other clinically defined inherited RDDs include cone dystrophy (CD) characterized by cone degeneration, cone-rod dystrophy (CRD) associated with cone degeneration followed by rod degeneration, and Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), an early-onset RDD characterized past astringent loss of vision at nascency or within the first twelvemonth of life (den Hollander et al., 2008). Congenital stationary night blindness (CSNB) is a group of nonprogressive retinal disorders characterized by impaired night vision and associated with loss in rod or both rod and cone function. Achromatopsia (ACHM) is a nonprogressive cone disorder associated with partial or consummate loss in colour vision. Inherited retinal diseases have been linked to mutations in proteins that play crucial roles in processes such as phototransduction; the visual cycle; outer segment (Bone) structure and morphogenesis; connecting cilium structure and ship, as well as in cellular functions that include poly peptide trafficking; protein folding and postal service-translational modification; protein trafficking; RNA splicing and transcription; nucleotide, sugar and lipid metabolism; extracellular matrix construction; ion transport; synaptic structure and neurotransmission; and development. The molecular and cellular mechanisms past which mutations in specific genes cause photoreceptor cell death are currently under all-encompassing investigation.

Visual or retinoid wheel

In the conventional visual cycle, all-trans
retinal released from rhodopsin following photoexcitation is reduced to all-trans
retinol by RDH8 in disks (see poster). All-trans
retinol is shuttled to RPE cells past the interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein (IRBP) where it is first converted to its retinyl esters past lecithin retinol acyl transferase (LRAT), before beingness isomerized to eleven-cis-retinol by RPE65, oxidized to eleven-cis-retinal by RDH5 and other RDHs, and delivered back to photoreceptors by IRBP for the regeneration of rhodopsin. However, a substantial fraction of all-trans
retinal that is released from rhodopsin reversibly reacts with phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) to form the Schiff base adduct
N-retinylidene-PE (North-ret-PE). This retinoid compound can become trapped on the luminal leaflet of disk membranes. ABCA4 actively transports or flips
N-ret-PE to the cytoplasmic leaflet of deejay membranes (Molday et al., 2009; Quazi et al., 2012) (see poster). All-trans
retinal produced through the reversible dissociation of
N-ret-PE is then reduced by RDH8 every bit role of the visual cycle. Retinal tin diffuse from photoreceptor OS to the IS and RPE cells. Other RDH isozymes, including RDH12 and RDH10, protect these cellular compartments against retinal toxicity. Contempo studies have shown that ABCA4 too plays a crucial role in the removal of backlog xi-cis
retinal that is non needed for the regeneration of rhodopsin (Boyer et al., 2012). ABCA4 can flip the 11-cis
isomer of
North-ret-PE from the luminal to the cytoplasmic leaflet of disks (Quazi and Molday, 2014). This transport function, coupled with chemical isomerization to all-trans-N-ret-PE, enables all-trans
retinal to be reduced to all-trans
retinol by RDH8 for entry into the visual cycle. This ensures that none of the xi-cis
and all-trans
retinal accrue in disks. If these compounds are non efficiently removed, they can course toxic bisretinoid compounds, which accrue in RPE cells upon Bone phagocytosis. Loftier levels of bisretinoids within lipofuscin deposits are plant in individuals with Stargardt macular degeneration linked to mutations in the gene encoding ABCA4 also as in
Abca4-knockout mice (Allikmets et al., 1997; Mata et al., 2000; Molday and Zhang, 2010; Sparrow et al., 2012). In addition to the conventional visual bicycle, cone photoreceptors employ a modified visual cycle in which 11-cis
retinal is resynthesized from all-trans
retinol through a series of reactions that take place in Müller cells and cones (Mata et al., 2002). Nearly proteins that role in the visual wheel have been associated with retinal degenerative diseases. Mutations in the genes encoding LRAT and RPE65 have been linked to LCA, mutations in the gene encoding IRBP are associated with RP, and mutations in cistron encoding RDH5 cause a rare form of CSNB termed fundus albipunctatus (FA) (Travis et al., 2007).

Bone – membrane turnover and human relationship to not-motile cilia

Rod and cone Bone are structurally homologous to non-motile cilia. The CC, the simply concrete connection between OS and IS, is structurally equivalent to the ciliary transition zone (Gilliam et al., 2012). Passing through this 0.three-µm connection is an axoneme with a 9+0 arrangement of tubulin doublets that is anchored via the basal body to the ciliary rootlet, a structure that spans the length of the IS. The CC has been imaged in iii dimensions by using cryo-EM (Gilliam et al., 2012). About components of the CC are always nowadays in other not-motile cilia, although unique components, such every bit RPGRIP and a splice variant of RPGR (Hong et al., 2001), are present. Profuse bi-directional trafficking of soluble and transmembrane proteins occurs through the CC. Attributable to the high volume of transport (Besharse et al., 1977), the OS serves as a default destination for membrane proteins that lack localization information, for example, due to mutations (Agbaga et al., 2014; Baker et al., 2008; Tam et al., 2000), with the relative caste of Bone localization dependent on the rate of disk membrane synthesis (Pearring et al., 2013).

OS are rapidly renewed to ensure maximum photosensitivity, which requires ten days in mice, rats and
Xenopus laevis
(Besharse et al., 1977; Young, 1967), but vi weeks in
Rana pipiens. Radiolabeling shows that disk synthesis occurs at the base of the Os (Young and Droz, 1968). Older disks are displaced distally and eventually shed in packets from the tip of the Bone, where they are phagocytosed by the RPE (Kevany and Palczewski, 2010; Young and Bok, 1969). Because cone disks are not physically isolated, mixing of new and old components of the deejay membrane occurs (Immature, 1969); however, disk renewal, similarly, involves incorporation of new components as well equally shedding and phagocytosis of a fraction of the OS membranes (Anderson et al., 1978; Hogan et al., 1974).

Already several decades ago, it has been proposed that disks originate as evaginations of the PM, which then develop a specialized rim region and, somewhen, seal off completely in rods (Steinberg et al., 1980) (come across poster). This model is well-supported by several lines of evidence, including EM studies (Besharse et al., 1977; Steinberg et al., 1980), incorporation of membrane-impermeable dyes, such every bit Lucifer yellow, into basal disks (Matsumoto and Besharse, 1985) and the presence of open face-to-face disks in cones, which evolutionarily precede rods (Lamb et al., 2007). In contrast, more recently Sung and colleagues have proposed that rod disks are never continuous with the PM (Chuang et al., 2007) and originate from fusion of transport vesicles that transit the CC (Chuang et al., 2015). However, this model of disk synthesis, the evidence for which is limited to the output of a single laboratory, has been discounted by two recent findings. David Williams (Jules Stein Heart Institute, UCLA, CA) and co-workers imaged nascent disks in three dimensions by electron tomography, demonstrating both the presence of open disks and the source of enclosed disk profiles in standard electron micrographs (David Williams, personal communication). Ding et al. (2015) demonstrated that nascent disks are attainable to membrane-impermeable tannic acid, even in cases where 2nd electron micrographs point enclosure by a plasma membrane, and that even brusque delays in fixation tin can generate vesicular structures. Moreover, structural studies indicate that vesicles of the dimensions observed could not laissez passer through the basal body (Jin et al., 2010).

At least two membrane proteins are exclusively institute at the site of, and are likely to be involved in, disk synthesis within rods and cones: prominin-ane, which is also associated with membrane evaginations in other cell types (Han et al., 2012; Maw et al., 2000), and pcdh-21 (likewise known as CDHR1), a photoreceptor-specific protocadherin (Rattner et al., 2001). These proteins form a complex of unknown function (Yang et al., 2008) that too includes the extracellular soluble protein eyes shut (EYS) (Nie et al., 2012).

Protein trafficking to the OS

Trafficking of several proteins betwixt OS and IS has been examined in some item, including that of rhodopsin, Per2, arrestin, transducin, guanylate cyclase and phosphodiesterase (Pearring et al., 2013). Rhodopsin, the most abundant poly peptide in rod OS, is a transmembrane poly peptide with a C-terminal ciliary targeting signal (Tam et al., 2000) that is as well nowadays in cone opsins. The large unidirectional flow of rhodopsin to the Os makes it a cargo of interest for ciliary trafficking studies (Wang and Deretic, 2015). Rhodopsin trafficking involves crossing an uncharacterized improvidence bulwark that separates OS and IS PM components (Jin et al., 2010). Vesicles transporting rhodopsin fuse with the IS PM at a specialized convolution at the base of operations of the CC, termed the periciliary ridge complex (Papermaster et al., 1985; Peters et al., 1983). This structure is hypertrophied in frog rods, but analogous structures are present in mammalian photoreceptors and other master cilia. Small G-proteins are associated with membranes that contain newly synthesized rhodopsin (Deretic et al., 1995); these have likewise been implicated in rhodopsin trafficking following both
in vivo
and
in vitro
investigations that demonstrated an inhibition of trafficking by dominant-negative Rab8 (Moritz et al., 2001) and a direct interaction of Arf4 and Rab11 with the ciliary targeting signal (Deretic et al., 2005; Reish et al., 2014). Rab8 is also implicated through association of the Rab8 effector rabin8 with the multiple-protein complex comprised of vii Bardet–Biedl syndrome (BBS) proteins, the BBSome, which constitutes a coat complex coat that is involved in ciliary trafficking (Nachury et al., 2007), also every bit the presence of the Rab8 Global environment facility RPGR in the CC (Murga-Zamalloa et al., 2010). Other factors implicated in rhodopsin trafficking include the t-SNARE syntaxin-three (Mazelova et al., 2009b), the Rab11 effector FIP3 (too known equally IKBKG), the ArfGAP ASAP1 (Mazelova et al., 2009a), and cytoplasmic dynein (Tai et al., 1999). There is conflicting prove as to whether intraflagellar transport IFT – which is mediated by kinesin-two motor proteins – is involved, and kinesin-two might be more crucial for cone opsin transport (Avasthi et al., 2009; Bhowmick et al., 2009; Insinna and Besharse, 2008; Jiang et al., 2015a,b; Keady et al., 2011; Marszalek et al., 2000; Trivedi et al., 2012). A distinct localization signal has likewise been identified in Per2 (Salinas et al., 2013; Tam et al., 2004), which is transported by a pathway that bypasses the Golgi complex (Fariss et al., 1997; Tian et al., 2014). Several proteins require cofactors for Bone trafficking, including GC – which requires RD3 (Azadi et al., 2010), cone opsin (eleven-cis
retinal) (Zhang et al., 2008) and phosphodiesterase (UNC119) (Zhang et al., 2011).

The soluble proteins arrestin and transducin exhibit calorie-free-dependent trafficking (Peterson et al., 2003; Sokolov et al., 2002; Whelan and McGinnis, 1988). In response to light, arrestin migrates to rod Bone, whereas transducin translocates to IS. Retrograde send of transducin is linked to saturation of phosphodiesterase and does not occur in cones unless they are genetically modified to express rod opsin (Lobanova et al., 2010). Arrestin transport was originally idea to exist caused past its binding to phosphorylated rhodopsin. Nonetheless, it is more than likely to be an active transport mechanism that ensures adequate quenching of phototransduction, perhaps triggered by a phospholipase C cascade (Orisme et al., 2010), as rhodopsin phosphorylation is not required (Calvert et al., 2006; Mendez et al., 2003; Strissel et al., 2006). Tubulin has been proposed to bind with depression affinity to arrestin in the IS (Nair et al., 2005).

Conclusions and perspectives

Considerable progress has been made in the characterization of photoreceptor cells and their role in the initial step of the visual process. Most of the rod and cone proteins that play crucial roles in Bone structure, phototransduction and the visual cycle have been identified and characterized at molecular and cellular levels. The renewal of rod and cone Bone has likewise been elucidated in detail at cellular level. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for OS phagocytosis by RPE and disk morphogenesis require more-detailed studies. Boosted studies are likewise needed to define the molecular and cellular ground for poly peptide trafficking and sorting within photoreceptors as many of the proposed mechanisms are controversial and lacking in detail. Finally, further studies are needed to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for inherited retinal degenerative diseases, and the biochemical pathways important for photoreceptor survival and photoreceptor cell death. Information from these studies is crucial for the development of rational therapeutic approaches to slow or prevent vision loss in individuals who suffer from various retinal diseases.
