Cell localization of 23 kDa- and 35 kDa-crystallins in the retina of adult common frogs Rana temporaria L. was studied using indirect immunofluorescence. Intense specific fluorescence of both crystallins was observed all over the retina, in both periphery and central area. It was localized in elongated radially oriented cells, whose bodies were located in the inner nuclear layer. These cells gave many fluorescing processes in the same layer and main processes in the outer nuclear and ganglion layers, one in each. The processes formed a strong network of fibers around the photoreceptor and ganglion cells. Intense fluorescence was also observed in the layer of nerve fibers and adjoining inner limiting membrane. The distribution and morphology of crystalline-containing cells mostly coincides with what is known for the Muller cells of vertebrate eye. The identity of the cells we described and Muller cells was also confirmed using the antiserum to glial fibrillary acidic protein.
