Retinal cone bipolar cells are vulnerable to insults caused by the loss of photoreceptors in Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). In wild-type retina (Left panel), dendritic processes of the cone bipolar cells (Green) receive inputs from photoreceptors, which contain synaptic ribbons (Red), as visualized by antibodies against RIBEYE. In the mouse model of RP, however, the majority of synaptic ribbons are gone (Right panel), and cone bipolar cells undergo a negative remodeling. Scale bar, 10 µm.
