Abstract

Bipolar cells, but not other cell types in the turtle retina, take up and accumulate fluorescent markers from the external medium when bathed in zero calcium solutions. Selectively stained bipolar cells exhibit standard electrical behavior and appear to have normal morphologies. Dye uptake is not influenced by light but is blocked by metabolic inhibitors.
