Retina photoreceptor cone GLU cell
Townes-Anderson et al. J. Neurosci. 8:320-331.
 Neuronal Receptors (2)
  
SN Property present CF-Compartment Receptor Connect Note Publication facts
1 Yes Axon terminal D2 From dopaminergic interplexiform layer cells. This is only observed in rods in salamander.
2 Yes Distal equivalent dendrite Opsins photons act on the opsins Rhodopsin (rods) and red, green and blue opsins (cones), in disc membranes of the distal segment.
 Neuronal Currents (3)
  
SN Property present CF-Compartment Current Connect Note Publication facts
1 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.
2 Yes Axon terminal I L high threshold
3 Yes Soma I Cl,Ca
 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
