Localization of tritium-labeled digoxin in the eye of the rat was investigated, using autoradiographic and scintillographic techniques. The iris and inner retinal layers were found to be the primary binding sites of digitalis. Negligible amounts of radioactivity were found in the outer retinal layers, brain, and optic nerve.
