photoreceptor disc membrane Gene Set

Dataset GO Cellular Component Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type cellular component
Description Ovally-shaped membranous stack located inside the photoreceptor outer segment, and containing densely packed molecules of the photoreceptor protein rhodopsin that traverse the lipid bilayer. Disc membranes are apparently derived from the plasma membrane in the region of the cilium that connects the photoreceptor outer segment to the inner segment. (Gene Ontology, GO_0097381)
