Abstract

The composition of the IPM of these two strains of rat appears similar to the composition of the IPM of other species that have been studied. Whether the quantitative alteration in IRBP that appears to be produced by galactose feeding has functional significance, with particular relevance to retarding the development of the photoreceptor cell dystrophy of the SHR rat, is unclear at this time.
