Abstract: The light-induced loss of t-RDH in both cyclic light- and dark-reared rats is an oxidative and time dependent process that is not strictly photochemical in nature. The loss of rhodopsin and t-RDH activity, but not GS activity, following intense light exposure are manifestations of light's effect on photoreceptor cells without a comparable effect in the adjacent retinal Müller cells. Additional work will be needed to understand the differences in light damage susceptibility between retinal photoreceptors and gl…
