Retina photoreceptor rod GLU cell
 Neuronal Receptors (2)
  
SN Property present CF-Compartment Receptor Connect Note Publication facts
1 Yes Distal equivalent dendrite Opsins photons act on the opsins Rhodopsin (rods) in disc membranes of the distal segment.
2 Yes Axon terminal D2 From dopaminergic interplexiform layer cells. This is only observed in rods in salamander.
 Neuronal Currents (3)
  
SN Property present CF-Compartment Current Connect Note Publication facts
1 Yes Axon terminal I L high threshold
2 Yes Soma I Cl,Ca
3 Yes Distal equivalent dendrite I Mixed This is the non-selective Na and K current located in the plasma membrane of the distal segment. It is activated in the dark by cyclic GMP from the disc membranes.
 Neuronal Transmitters (1)
  
SN Property present CF-Compartment transmitter Connect Note Publication facts
1 Yes Axon terminal Glutamate Horizontal cell dendritic and axon terminals; probably also bipolar cell terminals. Matsui K, Hosoi N and Tachibana M, 1998
