In cephalopods the optic glands (OG) form a pair of oval organs located at the posterior edge of the optic brain tract, above the hilum of the optic lobes
(Boycott & Young 1956).
To obtain intact vesicles with higher purity, freshly dissected optic lobe
tissue was further fractionated by continuous glycerol density gradient centrifugation (Fig 1A).
To test the absorption and final concentration of T-817 within the cephalopod nervous system, the optic lobes
of control and fed squid were studied.
2+] in synaptosomes isolated from squid optic lobe
Dopamine modulates synaptic activity in the optic lobes
of cuttlefish, Sepia officinalis.
A frontal filament tract connects each frontal filament to its adjacent optic lobe
neuropil [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 5, 6B OMITTED].
Sections were de-waxed, incubated in anti-CE (cloned peptide sequence from squid optic lobes
, designated 25U2, raised in rabbit; 1:1000 dil.
The rate of protein synthesis by the synaptosomal fractions prepared from the optic lobe
was determined according to routine methods (1).
Squid optic lobe
membranes were incubated for 30 min on ice with various concentrations of CHAPS and then centrifuged at 43,000 rpm (100,000 x g) for 30 min.
Polysomes purified from the synaptosomal and microsomal fractions of squid optic lobe
actively synthesize proteins when supplemented with the supernatant fraction from a rabbit reticulocyte lysate.
Finally, I will study divergence in the visual system, beyond opsins, using comparative transcriptomics of the retina and the brain s optic lobes
Fossils reveal that dinosaurs often had very large eyes and sizable optic lobes
in their brains.
