We describe a new technique for the separation and isolation of nonpigmented ciliary body epithelial cells from rabbit. Excised ciliary body is incubated in a medium buffered with EGTA to a free-Ca2+ concentration of 10(-8) M, and the nonpigmented cell layer is separated from the pigmented layer by microdissection under direct visualization. This technique yields intact cells which are greater than 99% nonpigmented. It can be used to produce preparations of nonpigmented cell plasma membrane and of viable whole cells, which may be useful for biochemistry, pharmacology, cell transport studies and tissue culture.
