The RPE cells generate a voltage from apex to base because of the different ionic permeability characteristics on each surface and the presence of impermeable tight junct ions between the cells. Changes in the voltage acros s the apical or basal RPE membrane are reflected in the standing potential and are measurable clinically as th e c-wave on ERG or with EOG . M = Muller ce ll s.
