Isolated ciliary processes from pigmented rabbits were incubated with 86Rb, washed, and transferred to a runout medium. The appearance of 86Rb in this medium was followed. Uptake of 86Rb is decreased by lack of glucose and/or oxygen, and by 10 times excess potassium. Runout is decreased by cold (+10° C.) and by 3 or 30 mM. Ca and increased by complete substitution of lithium for sodium. Pilocarpine (10-3, 10-5M) had a small accelerating effect limited to the initial phase of runout, while the stable B-adrenergicagent butylsympatol (10-3M) in the presence of 2 mM. Ca had a very small but more longlasting accelerating effect. The a-adrenergic phenylephrine (10-2M) had no effect.
