Abstract

Cytoskeletal protrusions are emerging as key elements in the development of cellular networks through which material is readily exchanged. In parallel studies, Ortin-Martinez et al (2021) and Kalargyrou et al (2021) report for the first time a direct transfer of cytoplasmic and membrane-bound material between photoreceptors through nanotube-like connections, providing further evidence toward the existence of nanotube-mediated material transfer in vivo within the central nervous system.
