Our recent finding of the co-localization of 11-cis retinyl esters and 11-cis retinyl ester hydrolase (11-cis REH) activity in bovine retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) plasma membrane (PM) has led us to explore the possibility that the PM may provide 11-cis retinal for rhodopsin regeneration. In the RPE, visual chromophore is synthesized via a membrane associated 11-cis retinol dehydrogenase (11-cis...
