The in vivo incorporation of H-3-DL-leucine in the retina and lateral geniculate nucleus has been studied in albino rats by means of radioautography, and the results fully confirm the data of previous investigations on rabbit retina in vitro. Protein metabolism is particularly active in the ganglion cells of the lateral geniculate nucleus and in the centripetal conducting elements of the retina than in the sensory cells. In the latter, leucine incorporation is mainly present in the outer plexiform layer and in the inner segment.
