Abstract

Frozen semithin sections and unembedded retinal pieces were investigated by immunocytochemistry using two antibodies produced against visual pigments in our laboratory. One was a polyclonal serum (AO) raised against bovine rhodopsin, while the other one was a monoclonal antibody (COS-1) produced against an epitope present in a cone visual pigment. AO stained, as expected, rod outer segments; in addition it also recognized a single cone characterized by a deep yellow oil droplet as well as another single cone with a yellowish green oil droplet. In contrast, COS-1 labelled both members of the double cones; the principal member having a yellowish-green oil droplet and the accessory member. COS-1 also stained a single cone type exhibiting a large red oil droplet.
