oko meduzy mutations affect neuronal patterning in the zebrafish retina and reveal cell-cell interactions of the retinal neuroepithelial sheet. (1/12697)

Mutations of the oko meduzy (ome) locus cause drastic neuronal patterning defect in the zebrafish retina. The precise, stratified appearance of the wild-type retina is absent in the mutants. Despite the lack of lamination, at least seven retinal cell types differentiate in oko meduzy. The ome phenotype is already expressed in the retinal neuroepithelium affecting morphology of the neuroepithelial cells. Our experiments indicate that previously unknown cell-cell interactions are involved in development of the retinal neuroepithelial sheet. In genetically mosaic animals, cell-cell interactions are sufficient to rescue the phenotype of oko meduzy retinal neuroepithelial cells. These cell-cell interactions may play a critical role in the patterning events that lead to differentiation of distinct neuronal laminae in the vertebrate retina.  (+info)

The cytoskeletal network controls c-Jun expression and glucocorticoid receptor transcriptional activity in an antagonistic and cell-type-specific manner. (2/12697)

The physical and functional link between adhesion molecules and the cytoskeletal network suggests that the cytoskeleton might mediate the transduction of cell-to-cell contact signals, which often regulate growth and differentiation in an antagonistic manner. Depolymerization of the cytoskeleton in confluent cell cultures is reportedly sufficient to initiate DNA synthesis. Here we show that depolymerization of the cytoskeleton is also sufficient to repress differentiation-specific gene expression. Glutamine synthetase is a glia-specific differentiation marker gene whose expression in the retinal tissue is regulated by glucocorticoids and is ultimately dependent on glia-neuron cell contacts. Depolymerization of the actin or microtubule network in cells of the intact retina mimics the effects of cell separation, repressing glutamine synthetase induction by a mechanism that involves induction of c-Jun and inhibition of glucocorticoid receptor transcriptional activity. Depolymerization of the cytoskeleton activates JNK and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and induces c-Jun expression by a signaling pathway that depends on tyrosine kinase activity. Induction of c-Jun expression is restricted to Muller glial cells, the only cells in the tissue that express glutamine synthetase and maintain the ability to proliferate upon cell separation. Our results suggest that the cytoskeletal network might play a part in the transduction of cell contact signals to the nucleus.  (+info)

Identification of a novel family of targets of PYK2 related to Drosophila retinal degeneration B (rdgB) protein. (3/12697)

The protein tyrosine kinase PYK2 has been implicated in signaling pathways activated by G-protein-coupled receptors, intracellular calcium, and stress signals. Here we describe the molecular cloning and characterization of a novel family of PYK2-binding proteins designated Nirs (PYK2 N-terminal domain-interacting receptors). The three Nir proteins (Nir1, Nir2, and Nir3) bind to the amino-terminal domain of PYK2 via a conserved sequence motif located in the carboxy terminus. The primary structures of Nirs reveal six putative transmembrane domains, a region homologous to phosphatidylinositol (PI) transfer protein, and an acidic domain. The Nir proteins are the human homologues of the Drosophila retinal degeneration B protein (rdgB), a protein implicated in the visual transduction pathway in flies. We demonstrate that Nirs are calcium-binding proteins that exhibit PI transfer activity in vivo. Activation of PYK2 by agents that elevate intracellular calcium or by phorbol ester induce tyrosine phosphorylation of Nirs. Moreover, PYK2 and Nirs exhibit similar expression patterns in several regions of the brain and retina. In addition, PYK2-Nir complexes are detected in lysates prepared from cultured cells or from brain tissues. Finally, the Nir1-encoding gene is located at human chromosome 17p13.1, in proximity to a locus responsible for several human retinal diseases. We propose that the Nir and rdgB proteins represent a new family of evolutionarily conserved PYK2-binding proteins that play a role in the control of calcium and phosphoinositide metabolism downstream of G-protein-coupled receptors.  (+info)

Involvement of poly (ADP-ribose)-polymerase in the Pax-6 gene regulation in neuroretina. (4/12697)

The quail Pax-6 gene is expressed from two promoters named P0 and P1. P0 promoter is under the control of a neuroretina-specific enhancer (EP). This enhancer activates the P0 promoter specifically in neuroretina cells and in a developmental stage-dependent manner. The EP enhancer binds efficiently, as revealed by southwestern experiments, to a 110 kDa protein present in neuroretina cells but not in Quail Embryos Cells and Retinal Pigmented Epithelium which do not express the P0-initiated mRNAs. To study the role of p110 in Pax-6 regulation, we have purified the p110 from neuroretina cells extracts. Based on the peptide sequence of the purified protein, we have identified the p110 as the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP). Using bandshift experiments and footprinting studies, we present evidence that PARP is a component of protein complexes bound to the EP enhancer that increases the on rate of the protein complex formation to DNA. Using PARP inhibitors (3AB and 6.5 Hphe), we show that these products are able to inhibit EP enhancer activity in neuroretina cells. Finally, we demonstrate that these inhibitors are able to decrease the expression of the P0-initiated mRNA in the MC29-infected RPE cells which, in contrast to the RPE cells, accumulated the PARP in response to v-myc expression. Our results suggest that PARP is involved in the Pax-6 regulation.  (+info)

Both mRNAs for bv7-3 and bv7-3s were detected in nervous system by Northern blot analysis. In immunofluorescence analysis in transfected HEK 293T cells, myc-tagged bv7-3 was mainly detected on the plasma membrane, whereas myc-tagged bv7-3s showed a pattern of intracellular membrane staining.  (+info)

Cell junctions in the developing compound eye of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria. (6/12697)

Intercellular junctions in the developing retina of the locust Schistocerca gregaria have been examined by electron microscopy. Different types of junction appear in a well defined sequence during development. Five stages of ommatidial development are described. Close junctions and punctate junctions are present throughout development. Gap junctions appear transiently amongst the undifferentiated cells, before clearly defined preommatidia can be distinguished. The subsequent disappearance of gap junctions may be correlated with cell determination. Lanthanum studies confirm these findings. The later sequential appearance of adhesive junction types is described. These include septate desmosomes and two types of desmosomes. In the fully differentiated ommatidium only two types of junction remain, these are: desmosomes and rhabdomeric junctions.  (+info)

The neuronal basis of a sensory analyser, the acridid movement detector system. I. Effects of simple incremental and decremental stimuli in light and dark adapted animals. (7/12697)

1. The response of the movement detector (MD) system to proportionally constant incremental and decremental stimuli has been studied at various degrees of light and dark adaptation. Action potentials in the descending contralateral movement detector neurone were taken as the indicator of response. 2. Over a range of at least six log10 units of adapting luminance, the MD system behaves as an ON/OFF unit, giving responses to both incremental and decremental changes in the illumination of a 5 degrees target. 3. With increasing amplitudes of stimuli, both the ON and OFF responses saturate rapidly. Saturation is reached sooner at higher levels of light adaptation. At all levels of light adaptation, the OFF response is greater than the ON. The ratio for saturating stimuli is approximately constant at around 3:2. 4. At the brightest adapting luminances used (20 000 cd/m2) the ON response is reduced but not lost. At the lowest (0-004 cd/m2) the OFF response to a 5 degrees disc fails, but can be regained by increasing the test area to 10 degrees. 5. From what is known of the retina of locusts and other insects, it is thought that light and dark adaptation in the MD system can be adequately explained by events at the retinula cell.  (+info)

Light-induced calcium influx into retinal axons is regulated by presynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptor activity in vivo. (8/12697)

Visual activity is thought to be a critical factor in controlling the development of central retinal projections. Neuronal activity increases cytosolic calcium, which was hypothesized to regulate process outgrowth in neurons. We performed an in vivo imaging study in the retinotectal system of albino Xenopus laevis tadpoles with the fluorescent calcium indicator calcium green 1 dextran (CaGD) to test the role of calcium in regulating axon arbor development. We find that visual stimulus to the retina increased CaGD fluorescence intensity in retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon arbors within the optic tectum and that branch additions to retinotectal axon arbors correlated with a local rise in calcium in the parent branch. We find three types of responses to visual stimulus, which roughly correlate with the ON, OFF, and SUSTAINED response types of RGC reported by physiological criteria. Imaging in bandscan mode indicated that patterns of calcium transients were nonuniform throughout the axons. We tested whether the increase in calcium in the retinotectal axons required synaptic activity in the retina; intraocular application of tetrodotoxin (10 microM) or nifedipine (1 and 10 microM) blocked the stimulus-induced increase in RGC axonal fluorescence. A second series of pharmacological investigations was designed to determine the mechanism of the calcium elevation in the axon terminals within the optic tectum. Injection of bis-(o-aminophenoxy)-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid-AM (BAPTA-AM) (20 mM) into the tectal ventricle reduced axonal calcium levels, supporting the idea that visual stimulation increases axonal calcium. Injection of BAPTA (20 mM) into the tectal ventricle to chelate extracellular calcium also attenuated the calcium response to visual stimulation, indicating that calcium enters the axon from the extracellular medium. Caffeine (10 mM) caused a large increase in axonal calcium, indicating that intracellular stores contribute to the calcium signal. Presynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) may play a role in axon arbor development and the formation of the topographic retinotectal projection. Injection of nicotine (10 microM) into the tectal ventricle significantly elevated RGC axonal calcium levels, whereas application of the nAChR antagonist alphaBTX (100 nM) reduced the stimulus-evoked rise in RGC calcium fluorescence. These data suggest that light stimulus to the retina increases calcium in the axon terminal arbors through a mechanism that includes influx through nAChRs and amplification by calcium-induced calcium release from intracellular calcium stores. Such a mechanism may contribute to developmental plasticity of the retinotectal system by influencing both axon arbor elaboration and the strength of synaptic transmission.  (+info)

There are many complex structures that make up the human eye. Our practice, The Retina Group of Washington focuses on the retina The retina is the light sensitive area at the back of the eye where light coming through the eye is converted into images. Sometimes the retina can become detached from the back of the eye, which will cause retina complications in Bethesda and possibly a loss of vision. A detached retina often starts with a tear or hole on the retina that allows tissue or fluid in between the retina and the eyes wall. When tissue builds up behind the retina it can pull away and eventually detach from the wall.. There are several symptoms to look out for associated with a detached retina. The most common symptom is floaters, or dark spots and string-like shapes floating around your field of vision. Vitreous gel that has aged or loose blood or pigment causes these retina complications in Bethesda. Floaters dont necessarily mean that there is a retinal detachment but they are an ...
Purpose : The mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase exists in two distinct complexes, mTORC1 and mTORC2, with only mTORC1 containing the regulatory-associated protein of mTOR (Raptor). mTORC1 is a key regulatory control point of metabolism and protein synthesis. Little is known about the role of mTORC1 in retinal physiology. To determine if mTORC1 is necessary for retinal development the effect of negating mTORC1 function in the embryonic neural retina on visual acuity and retinal anatomy was examined. Methods : Six3cre mice were bred with Rptorf/f mice to cause conditional knockout (cKO) of Raptor expression in the neural retina beginning at approximately embryonic day 9. Six3cre-Rptorf/f mice were compared to Six3cre and to Rptorf/f controls. PCR confirmed Rptor gene editing and qRT-PCR confirmed a decrease of Raptor mRNA expression in whole retinas. Optokinetic response monitoring was used to examine visual acuity at 8 weeks of age. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to ...
For proper function of the retina, the correct proportions of retinal cell types must be generated, they must be organized into cell-specific laminae, and appropriate synaptic connections must be made. To understand the genetic regulation of retinal development, we have analyzed mutations in the mosaic eyes gene that disrupt retinal lamination, the localization of retinal cell divisions to the retinal pigmented epithelial surface and retinal pigmented epithelial development. Although retinal organization is severely disrupted in mosaic eyes mutants, surprisingly, retinal cell differentiation occurs. The positions of dividing cells and neurons in the brain appear normal in mosaic eyes mutants, suggesting that wild-type mosaic eyes function is specifically required for normal retinal development. We demonstrate that mosaic eyes function is required within the retinal pigmented epithelium, rather than in dividing retinal cells. This analysis reveals an interaction between the retinal pigmented ...
The presently acknowledged onset of synaptogenesis in the chick retina from embryonic day 12 (E12) onward stands in contrast with the appearance of spontaneous electrical activity, of presynaptic proteins, or of neurotransmitters during early formation of the inner (E6-E8) and outer (E9) plexiform layers. Therefore, we investigated the chick retina from E6 to E12 at which age first synapses appear by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The study provides evidence that synaptogenesis in the chick retina begins shortly after the plexiform layers have started to emerge. The first synapses are electrical synapses, which appear on E7, one day after the future inner plexiform layer emerged, and towards the end of E8 in the nascent outer plexiform layer. Conventional chemical synapses appear in both plexiform layers on E8, in the inner plexiform layer (stage 34) only a few hours earlier than in the outer plexiform layer (stage 35). The first synapses are formed close to the apex of the optic fissure and
The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eyeball. Images that come through the eyes lens are focused on the retina. The retina then converts these images to electric signals and sends them along the optic nerve to the brain.. The retina usually looks red or orange because there are many blood vessels right behind it. An ophthalmoscope allows a health care provider to see through your pupil and lens to the retina. Sometimes photos or special scans of the retina can show things that the provider cannot see just by looking at the retina through the ophthalmoscope. If other eye problems block the providers view of the retina, ultrasound can be used.. Anyone who experiences these vision problems should get a retinal examination:. ...
Scientists have been trying to replace retinas in otherwise healthy eyes to help people suffering from diseases like retinitis pigmentosa. Unfortunately, earlier efforts were only able to use rigid, hard materials , which are very different from the natural retina. A researcher at Oxford University, however, has created a synthetic retina made of biological materials to better match natural human tissues. The study, titled Light-Patterned Current Generation in a Droplet Bilayer Array was published this April in Scientific Reports . Your retina sits at the back of your eye collecting light and converting them to electrical signals for your brain. The research, led by 24-year-old Vanessa Restrepo-Schild, uses a retina made of soft water droplets called hydrogels and biological cell membrane proteins. These cells act like pixels to detect light and create a gray scale image. It can then generate electrical signals to stimulate the neurons at the back of your eye just like a natural retina does. ...

The peptide somatostatin-14 (SRIF) acts in the mammalian retina through its distinct receptors (sst1-5). Scarce information is available on SRIF function in the retina, including the elucidation of transduction pathways mediating SRIF action. We have investigated SRIF and SRIF receptor modulation of adenylyl cyclase (AC) activity in both wild type (WT) retinas and sst1 or sst2 knock-out (KO) retinas which are known to over-express sst2 or sst1 receptors, respectively. In WT retinas, application of SRIF compounds does not affect forskolin-stimulated AC activity. In contrast, activation of sst1 or sst2 receptors inhibits AC in the presence of sst2 or sst1 receptor antagonists, respectively. Results from sst1 KO retinas demonstrate that either SRIF or octreotide, pertussis toxin-dependently inhibit AC activity. In contrast, in sst2 KO retinas, neither SRIF nor CH-275, an sst1 receptor agonist, are found to influence AC activity. As revealed by immunoblotting experiments, in sst1 KO retinas, levels ...

Establishment of the DV and AP axes constitutes a fundamental step in eye development. Several transcription factors and signaling molecules expressed asymmetrically in the early retina are key to establishing the AP and DV axes of the retina: e.g. Vax (Barbieri et al., 2002; Mui et al., 2002; Schulte et al., 1999) and Ventroptin (Sakuta et al., 2001) in the ventral retina, and Tbx5 and BMP4 (Koshiba-Takeuchi et al., 2000) in the dorsal retina. In addition to these early DV molecules, retinoic acid (RA) activity is asymmetrically distributed along the DV axis in the retina, suggesting that it may play a patterning role. The presence of a dorsal and a ventral zone of RA activity in the retina, separated by a middle zone that is free of RA, is conserved among vertebrate species such as zebrafish, chick and mice (Marsh-Armstrong et al., 1994; McCaffery et al., 1999; Mey et al., 1997). The two zones of RA activity are determined by the expression of two RA-synthesizing enzymes, RALDH1 in the dorsal ...

The vitreous is the area anterior to the retina. It contains a gel -like substance that thins as we age. The layer of tissue lining the inside of the back of the eye is called the retina. It contains millions of photoreceptor cells which convert light into images. The macula is where light comes to a focus - it has mainly cone cells for color vision.. The vitreous is a clear gelatin-like substance between the lens of the eye and the retina. Light rays, carrying images to the brain, must pass through this clear gel on the way to the retina. The retina transmits information (carried by light rays) to the brain via the optic nerve. When disease or injury causes clouding of the vitreous or damage to the retina, the result is a partial or complete loss of vision.. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common of all retinal diseases. A direct result of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy is an alteration of blood vessels that provide nourishment to the retina. These blood vessels may leak, ...
Taken together, the evidence strongly supports the notion that the inverted retina and its major consequence (the positioning of the photoreceptors in the outer section of the retina where they are in intimate contact with the choriocapillaris) is a specific adaptation designed to deliver abundant quantities of oxygen to the photoreceptor cells commensurate with their high energy demands--especially in metabolically active groups such as the birds and mammals. Rather than being a case of maladaptation, the inverted retina is probably an essential element in the overall design of the vertebrate visual system.. This conclusion is reinforced by the difficulty of envisaging alternative means of delivering the required amounts of oxygen to the photoreceptor cell layer if the retina had the typical non-inverted design of the sort that might appeal to a tidy-minded engineer. Blood absorbs light strongly, as witnessed by the fact that in the area centralis or macular region--which is the high-visual ...
The retina is a thin nerve membrane that detects light entering the eye. Nerve cells in the retina send signals of what the eye sees along the optic nerve to the brain.. The retina lines the back two-thirds of the eye and is made up of two layers: the sensory retina and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE).. The macula, near the center of the retina at the back of the eyeball, provides the sharp, detailed, central vision a person uses for focusing on what is directly in the line of sight. The rest of the retina provides side (peripheral) vision, which lets a person see shapes but not fine details.. ...
Retinal Vein Occlusions (RVOs) occur when small veins in the retina suddenly close off for a period of time. This leads to a sudden increase in blood pressure in the affected area of the retina that causes blood to spill out of the veins into the retinal tissue, often damaging part retina. RVOs can vary greatly in their severity. Sometimes vision is not affected, other times it can be severely affected.. Vision loss with RVOs can occur due to the blood vessels in the retina closing off permanently (ischemia). Vision may also be affected by blood vessels becoming leaky. Serum (clear fluid within the blood) can leak from these blood vessels into the retina making it thick and swollen and allowing proteins and fats to accumulate in the retina. When this retinal swelling occurs in the center of the retina, it can make the vision very blurry (macular edema). Macular edema can often be treated with eye injections or with laser.. Sometimes abnormal blood vessels can start growing in the eye after an ...

The effects of a glutathione-containing intra-ocular irrigation solution, BSS Plus®, on retinal function and on the survival of ganglion cells in whole-mount retinal explants were studied. Evidence is provided that the perfused ex vivo bovine retina can serve as an alternative to in vivo animal testing. Isolated bovine retinas were prepared and perfused with an oxygen-saturated standard irrigation solution, and an electroretinogram was recorded to assess retinal function. After stable b-waves were detected, the isolated retinas were perfused with BSS Plus for 45 minutes. To investigate the effects of BSS Plus on photoreceptor function, 1mM aspartate was added to the irrigation solution in order to obtain a-waves, and the ERG trace was monitored for 75 minutes. For histological analysis, isolated whole retinal mounts were stored for 24 hours at 4°C, in the dark. The percentages of cell death in the retinal ganglion cell layer and in the outer and inner nuclear layers were estimated by using an ...
Supplementary MaterialsS1 Fig: Specificities of anti-QKI antibody in the developmental retina. myelinogenesis in the central and peripheral nervous systems and has been implicated neuron-glia fate decision in the brain; however, neither the expression nor function of QKI in the neural retina is known. Here we report the expression of QKI RNA-binding protein in the developing and mature mouse retina. QKI was strongly expressed by Mller glial cells in both the developing and adult retina. Intriguingly, during development, QKI was expressed in early differentiating neurons, such as the horizontal isoquercitrin enzyme inhibitor and amacrine cells, and subsequently in later differentiating bipolar cells, but not in photoreceptors. Neuronal expression was uniformly weak in the adult. Among QKI isoforms (5, 6, and 7), QKI-5 was the predominantly expressed isoform in the adult retina. To study the function of QKI in the mouse retina, we examined mutant mice (is a cloned gene lying immediately proximal ...

The retina is a sensory tissue that collects light and color information of objects and converts into electrical signals, which are then sent to the brain. After light detection by the photoreceptors in the retina, the first step in visual processing occurs in retinal interneurons that are either stimulated or inhibited by photoreceptors during the transmission of the light information to retinal ganglion cells wired to the brain. Changes in the composition and connectivity of these retinal interneurons, therefore, alter the output of the retina, modifying the visual information sent to the brain.. Neurons comprising the retina are produced before animals open their eyes for the first time. This process is regulated by various transcription factors, which bind specific DNA sequences and induce the expression of target genes that define the features of each cell type. Paired-homeobox 6 (PAX6) is an important transcription factor of retinal interneurons named as amacrine cells that tune the ...

AU - Esposito, Giuseppe. AU - Malchiodi-Albedi, Fiorella. AU - Patrono, Clarice. AU - Matteucci, Andrea. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Retinal tissue can receive incidental γ-rays exposure during radiotherapy either of tumors of the eye and optic nerve or of head-and-neck tumors, and during medical diagnostic procedures. Healthy retina is therefore at risk of suffering radiation-related side effects and the knowledge of pathophysiological response of retinal cells to ionizing radiations could be useful to design possible strategies of prevention and management of radiotoxicity. In this study, we have exploited an in vitro model (primary rat retinal cell culture) to study an array of biological effects induced on retinal neurons by γ-rays. Most of the different cell types present in retinal tissue ...
There are many different parts of your eyes that work together to provide you with adequate eyesight. Issues or diseases that affect these parts of the eye can have a drastic effect on your vision if not treated properly or in a time sensitive manner. Problems that may affect the retina can quickly lead to vision damage or vision loss, but here at The Retina Group of Washington our Edgewater retina specialist is here to provide you with the comprehensive care and treatment you need to resolve any such concerns, including surgery or cryotherapy.. Retinal tears or instances of retinal detachment should be treated immediately and are considered emergencies.

Retinal tears are a bit different, but should still be treated promptly, and we here at The Retina Group of Washington can use cryotherapy to help. Cryotherapy involves placing a cold probe against the wall of your eye. This is used to ...
Incubation of cat retinas with 3H-glycine in vitro, followed by horizontal sectioning and autoradiography, showed labeling of 10-12% of bipolar cells and 45% of amacrine cells. To ascertain the effects of glycine-accumulating bipolar and amacrine cells on the response properties of retinal ganglion cells, in vivo iontophoretic studies were performed in the cat eye. Glycine inhibited all ganglion cells, and this action was blocked by strychnine. Aminophosphonobutyric acid (APB) suppressed ON-ganglion cells, but activated OFF-ganglion cells. The influence of APB upon OFF-ganglion cells could be completely blocked by strychnine. In the mudpuppy, APB suppressed ON-bipolar cells without affecting OFF-bipolar cells and without direct effects on other retinal neurons (Slaughter and Miller, 1981, 1985). If APB has the same mode of action in the cat retina, the present results suggest a glycinergic inhibitory input of the ON-channel upon OFF-ganglion cells.. ...
Rods and cones of the retina. False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of rod and cone cells of the eye retina. Rod cells (orange) and less numerous cone cells (blue) are specialized light-sensitive cells. They occur on the surface of the retina. They are responsible for detecting visible images, which are transmitted as nerve impulses to the optic nerve and the brain. There are about 130 million rod cells in the human retina; they detect light intensity and so are important for day and night vision. While the less numerous cone-like cone cells (about 6.5 million in the human retina) respond specifically to colour. Magnification: unknown. - Stock Image P424/0080

The retina is the thin membrane that lines the back of the eye and contains the rods and cones that transfer light focused by the cornea and lens into electric impulses carried by the optic nerve to the brain. The eye takes the picture and the brain develops it.. In the center of the retina, similar to the central bulls-eye of a target, is the macula, the most sensitive part of the retina and the part that gives precise vision for reading and driving. Some common disorders of the retina include macular degeneration, floaters and retinal detachment. Many patients with macular degeneration can now be treated with vitamins and medication to avert severe vision loss.. Patients with diabetes can develop a growth of new blood vessels in the retina which may bleed and affect vision. We use special instruments, cameras and lasers to detect retina problems and can usually treat most problems in the office.. ...
Group leader : Muriel Perron Our SCaNR research group is associated with the private laboratory of Retina France association, the CERTO (Centre dEtudes et de Recherches Thérapeutiques en Ophtalmologie), with whom we are developing our research projects in collaboration.. Our long-term goal is to provide foundations for the development of innovative therapeutic approaches in patients afflicted with degenerative retinal diseases, such as Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) or Aged Macular Degeneration (AMD).. One of the intended strategy is to revitalize the naturally limited regenerative capacity of the mammalian retina. In fish and amphibians , different populations of stem cells contribute efficiently to the regeneration of the retina following injury. These animals thus offers powerful model system to dissect the signaling pathways underlying regeneration and provide essential information to stimulate the proliferation and neurogenic potential of dormant retinal stem cells in mammals. In this context, ...

Müller cells, that belong to the family of radial glia cells, have central functions during retinogenesis. They form a stabilizing scaffold, they are candidate targets for the mediation of extraneous retinogenetic factors, and they are an important source for retina-borne retinogenetic factors. Reaggregate cultures allow the analysis of retinogenesis from dispersed cells to fully laminated tissues. Reaggregating cells from the embryonic chick retina reassemble to reversed laminated cellular spheres including constituents of all retinal layers, yet the outer nuclear layer is represented by internal rosettes. Using spheroids, we tested whether Müller cells have a decisive function in establishing retinal polarity and in determining the lamination pattern. To this end, we established confluent monolayers of highly enriched Müller cells derived from E6 or E13 chicken retinas, and then let dispersed E5.5 retinal cells reaggregate either in the absence of these monolayers or on top of them. In the ...
Background Compact disc133 is a cell surface marker of haematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. Cyclin D1 expression) without significant neurosphere generation. Differentiation whilst forming neurospheres was re-established on LIF withdrawal. Conclusion These data support the evidence that CD133 expression characterises a populace of cells within the resident adult human retina which have progenitor cell properties and that their turnover and differentiation is usually influenced by LIF. This may explain differences in retinal responses observed following injury or disease. Background Neurospheres could be reliably produced from post-mortem adult individual retina regardless of post-mortem period (up to 48 hours) or age group of C13orf18 donor [1-3]. Therefore the fact that adult human retina might possess an inherent ability for cellular replacement throughout life. To the target a existence is certainly acquired by us of somatic progenitor cells, within adult individual tissues, which unlike ...
When chick embryos are treated with a monoclonal antibody specifically blocking the activity of neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), the development of the retina is profoundly affected. Fewer axons are found in the optic nerve, and the retina shows abnormalities in all layers. Early during retinogenesis, the proportion of dividing cells is higher in NT-3-deprived embryos compared with age-matched controls and that of differentiated neurons is smaller. The NT-3 receptor trkC is expressed early by a majority of retinal cells, and NT-3 is present in the retina at the earliest stage studied. Initially, it is located mainly in the pigmented epithelium, with a shift toward the neural retina as development proceeds. Thus, NT-3 seems to be an essential intrinsic signal acting early in development to promote the differentiation and survival of many retinal neurons ...
Here, we illustrate an optical method for directly measuring the light-regulated synaptic output of neurons in the retina. The method allows simultaneous recording from many retinal neurons in intact flat-mount preparations of the vertebrate retina.

Y1 - 2006/12/22. N2 - Purpose: Pathophysiological events in the retinal ganglion cell layer (GCL) are a prominent feature of several optic neuropathies including glaucoma. The purpose of this study was to identify and catalog genes whose expression in the human retina is restricted to the GCL. Methods: Laser capture microdissection (LCM) technology was used to isolate tissue from the perimacular retina of three human donors without retinal or optic nerve disease. RNA was isolated from the (1) retinal GCL and (2) the inner and outer nuclear layers of the same retina, and the gene expression profiles of both fractions were determined using Affymetrix Hu133Plus 2.0 GeneChips. Data were analyzed to identify those genes whose expression is substantially more prevalent in the GCL when compared to the outer retinal ...
The chicken retina is an established animal model for myopia and light-associated growth studies. It has a unique morphology: it is afoveate and avascular; oxygen and nutrition to the inner retina is delivered by a vascular tissue (pecten) that protrudes into the vitreous. Here we present, to the best of our knowledge, the first in vivo, volumetric high-resolution images of the chicken retina. Images were acquired with an ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (UHROCT) system with 3.5 µm axial resolution in the retina, at the rate of 47,000 A-scans/s. Spatial variations in the thickness of the nerve fiber and ganglion cell layers were mapped by segmenting and measuring the layer thickness with a semi-automatic segmentation algorithm. Volumetric visualization of the morphology and morphometric analysis of the chicken retina could aid significantly studies with chicken retinal models of ophthalmic diseases.. ©2011 Optical Society of America.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Organization and development of horizontal cells in the goldfish retina, I. T2 - The use of monoclonal antibody AT101. AU - Lam, Dominic Man Kit. AU - Peng, You Wei. PY - 1991/4. Y1 - 1991/4. N2 - We have produced and characterized a monoclonal antibody, AT101, which selectively labels both viable and formaldehyde-fixed horizontal cell axon terminals, but not their somas or axons, of the goldfish (Carassius auratus) retina. The antigen recognized by AT101 appears to be a cell surface glycoprotein with a molecular weight of about 35,000 Daltons, and is present exclusively or predominantly in nervous tissues of all vertebrate species examined. We have used AT101 as a probe to analyze immunocytochemically the organization of horizontal cell axon terminals (HCATs) in the adult goldfish retina, and the emergence and maturation of these terminals during retinal development. Because of continued growth at the retinal margin in adult goldfish, there is a peripheral-to-central gradient in ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - An efficient method that reveals both the dendrites and the soma mosaics of retinal ganglion cells. AU - Zhan, Xue J.. AU - Troy, John B. PY - 1997/3/1. Y1 - 1997/3/1. N2 - A method of using neurobiotin to stain both the dendrites and the soma mosaics of retinal ganglion cells in fresh retinae is described. This method is simple to use and efficient in revealing morphological details for a large number of retinal ganglion cells. It has five advantages over currently available staining methods. (1) It stains all ganglion cells in the whole retina or in a selected retinal area, permitting ganglion cell distributions across the retina to be obtained. (2) It reveals cell dendrites in great detail, especially in regions outside the area centralis. The dendritic field mosaics and, therefore the dendritic field coverage factors, of different ganglion cell types across the whole retina can be obtained easily. (3) It works reliably, efficiently, and does not require the expensive set-up ...
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of our eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina through our cornea, pupil and lens. The retina converts the light rays into impulses that travel through the optic nerve to our brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see.. The middle of our eye is filled with a clear gel called vitreous (vit-ree-us) that is attached to the retina. As we get older, the vitreous may shrink and pull on the retina. When this happens, you may notice what look like flashing lights, lightning streaks or the sensation of seeing stars. These are called flashes.. Usually the vitreous moves away from the retina without causing problems. But sometimes the vitreous pulls hard enough to tear the retina in one or more places. Fluid may pass through a retinal tear, lifting the retina off the back of the eye - much as wallpaper can peel off a wall. When the retina is pulled away from the back of the eye like this, it is called a retinal detachment. The ...

The role of nitric oxide (NO) as a novel neurochemical mechanism controlling light adaptation of the outer retina is discussed by considering mainly published results. The emphasis is on the retinae of fishes and amphibia, but some data from the mammalian (rabbit) retinae have also been included for completeness. In the fish retina, application of NO donors in the dark caused light-adaptive photomechanical movements of cones. The normal effect of light adaptation in inducing cone contractions was suppressed by pretreatment of retinae with an NO scavenger. NO donors modulated horizontal cell activity by uncoupling the cells lateral gap junctional interconnections and enhancing negative feedback to cones, again consistent with a light-adaptive role of NO. Direct evidence for light adaptation-induced release of NO has been obtained in fish (carp) and rabbit retinae. The results strongly suggest that control of retinal light adaptation is, under multiple neurochemical control, with NO and dopamine having
TY - JOUR. T1 - Oxygen distribution in the macaque retina. AU - Ahmed, J.. AU - Braun, R. D.. AU - Dunn, R.. AU - Linsenmeier, Robert A. PY - 1993/1/1. Y1 - 1993/1/1. N2 - Purpose. Oxygen distribution was characterized in the macaque retina, which is more like the human retina than others studied previously. Methods. Profiles of oxygen tension (PO2) as a function of distance were recorded in a parafoveal region about halfway between the fovea and optic disk, and from the fovea in one animal. A one-dimensional diffusion model was used to determine photoreceptor oxygen consumption (QO2). Results. In the parafovea, the PO2 decreased as the electrode was withdrawn from the choroid toward the inner retina, reaching a minimum value during dark adaptation of about 9 mmHg at about 70% retinal depth, and then increasing more proximally. Approximately 90% of the oxygen requirement of the photoreceptors was supplied by the choroidal circulation and 10% by the retinal circulation. In light adaptation, there ...
The topographic map of cell position in the avian retina is inverted in its projection to the optic tectum. Dorsal retinal ganglion cell axons project to ventral tectum, and ventral retinal ganglion cells project to dorsal tectum. Topographic gradients of toponymic (TOP) cell surface molecules along the dorsoventral axes of retina and tectum also are inverted. TOP molecules are most abundant in dorsal retina and ventral tectum and least abundant in ventral retina and dorsal tectum during the period of initial retinal-tectal interaction. Thus, TOP molecules may be involved in orienting the retinotectal map. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Molecular biology of retinal ganglion cells. AU - Xiang, Mengqing. AU - Zhou, Hao. AU - Nathans, Jeremy. PY - 1996/1/23. Y1 - 1996/1/23. N2 - Retinal ganglion cells are the output neurons that encode and transmit information from the eye to the brain. Their diverse physiologic and anatomic properties have been intensively studied and appear to account well for a number of psychophysical phenomena such as lateral inhibition and chromatic opponency. In this paper, we summarize our current view of retinal ganglion cell properties and pose a number of questions regarding underlying molecular mechanisms. As an example of one approach to understanding molecular mechanisms, we describe recent work on several POU domain transcription factors that are expressed in subsets of retinal ganglion cells and that appear to be involved in ganglion cell development..

N2 - We used specific antibodies in immunoblot studies of membrane fractions derived from bovine retina, and in immunohistochemical studies of sections of rat retina to determine the distribution of two guanine nucleotide binding proteins Go (a G-protein of unknown function discovered in the brain) and transducin, in retina. Both Go and transducin were readily detected in membranes derived from whole retina, and in crude rod outer segment membranes. Purification of rod outer segment membranes by sucrose density gradient centrifugation resulted in enrichment in transducin and depletion of Go immunoreactivity. Transducin-α immunoreactivity was localized to ...
The intricate circuitry formed by amacrine cells in the inner plexiform layer (IPL) of the retina suggests that these interneurons play a major role in shaping the visual message. The majority of amacrine cells in the vertebrate retina are GABAergic. Thus, elucidating how GABAergic signaling is modulated in the IPL is critical in order to understand how the visual message is processed in the retina. The results presented here suggest that GABAergic signaling between amacrine cells can be modulated by the activation of metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) or by the production of the second messenger, nitric oxide (NO). A novel mGluR5 splice variant was isolated from the chicken retina with a truncated carboxy-terminal tail. Whole cell electrophysiological experiments indicated that activation of mGluR5 enhances GABA-gated currents recorded from cultured chick amacrine cells. This mGluR5-dependent enhancement occurred through the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate pathway and was dependent upon ...
With age, mobilization and migration of cells found within the retina may spread outward along the surface of the central retina forming a macular scar. This thin layer of scar tissue is known as a macular pucker. Macular pucker is known by a variety of names, including epiretinal membrane, surface wrinkling retinopathy, cellophane retinopathy, and internal limiting membrane disease. All of these names relate to the fact that there is a layer of thin scar tissue on the surface of the macula which result in mechanical wrinkling and distortion of the retina. Since the scar cells are attached to the retina, the retina itself becomes wrinkled in association with the progression of the scar. When this occurs in the central, critical portion of vision, the macula, visual symptoms may result.. The symptoms of a macular pucker include: distortion in lines or letters while reading, a decrease in central vision for distance and reading activities, and blurring or distortion of images when looking at ...
A retinal ganglion cell (RGC) is a type of neuron located near the inner surface (the ganglion cell layer) of the retina of the eye. It receives visual information from photoreceptors via two intermediate neuron types: bipolar cells and retina amacrine cells. Retina amacrine cells, particularly narrow field cells, are important for creating functional subunits within the ganglion cell layer and making it so that ganglion cells can observe a small dot moving a small distance. Retinal ganglion cells collectively transmit image-forming and non-image forming visual information from the retina in the form of action potential to several regions in the thalamus, hypothalamus, and mesencephalon, or midbrain. Retinal ganglion cells vary significantly in terms of their size, connections, and responses to visual stimulation but they all share the defining property of having a long axon that extends into the brain. These axons form the optic nerve, optic chiasm, and optic tract. A small percentage of ...

Amacrine cells are interneurons in the retina. Amacrine cells are responsible for 70% of input to retinal ganglion cells. Bipolar cells, which are responsible for the other 30% of input to retinal ganglia, are regulated by amacrine cells. Amacrine cells operate at the inner plexiform layer (IPL), the second synaptic retinal layer where bipolar cells and ganglion cells form synapses. There are about 40 different types of amacrine cells and are classified by the width of their field of connection, which layer(s) of the stratum in the IPL they are in, and by neurotransmitter type. No single type of amacrine cell predominates; the type with most frequency is observed only 13% of total population, and the remainders are distributed among many types of cell, each making up 5% or less of the total amacrine cell population. The average diameter of dendritic field for each type varies over 34 to 400 microns, and their overall shapes alone are enough to serve as criterion of classification. There is no ...

N2 - We have combined electrophysiology and chemical separation and measurement techniques with capillary electrophoresis (CE) to evaluate the role of endogenous D-serine as an NMDA receptor (NMDAR) coagonist in the salamander retina. Electrophysiological experiments were carried out using whole cell recordings from retinal ganglion cells and extracellular recordings of the proximal negative response (PNR), while bath applying two D-serine degrading enzymes, including Damino acid oxidase (DAAO) and D-serine deaminase (DsdA). The addition of either enzyme resulted in a significant and rapid decline in the light-evoked responses observed in ganglion cell and PNR recordings. The addition of ...
ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axotomy and death on the thickness of the inner plexiform (IPL), inner nuclear (INL), and outer plexiform layers (OPL), as well as the densities of short- (S) and middle-to-long-wavelength (M/L) cones in the porcine retina. Unilateral, peripapillary RGC axotomy was performed in six domestic pigs using an argon laser. In eight additional pigs the optic nerve was surgically transected. With the exception of two eyes that underwent sham surgeries, the contralateral eyes were not treated and served as controls. Damage to the retinal vasculature was ruled out with fluorescein angiography. Nine months later the retinas were flat mounted, and biopsies were taken at four retinal locations. Cone densities were determined with anti-visual pigment antibodies, COS-1 for M/L and OS-2 for S pigment. Semithin cross sections were made through all biopsies to measure the thickness of the retinal layers. The effect of ...
The vision correction and eye care center of The Retina Group of Washington will give you the best possible care to keep your eyes healthy and strong. Our retina specialists and retinal surgeons in Rockville believe that clear, comfortable vision is your right and your priority. Many of our patients have come to us for retinal surgery and treatment for retinal detachment in particular.. A retinal detachment is a serious and vision threatening event. A retinal detachment occurs when the retina, the light sensitive inner lining of the back of the eye, becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when it detaches, and unless it is reattached soon, permanent vision loss may result. If you suddenly notice spots, floaters, or flashes of light, you may be experiencing a retinal detachment. Your vision might become blurry, or you might have poor vision. These symptoms can occur gradually as the retina pulls away from the supportive tissue, or they may occur ...

The peptide hormone cholecistokinin (CCK) plays a key role in the central and peripheral nervous system. It is known to be involved in the digestive physiology and in the regulation of food intake. Moreover, the CCK expression has also been detected in the retina of different vertebrates, including fish, although its biological activity in this tissue remains to be elucidated. In literature no data are yet available about the CCK-immunoreactivity in the zebrafish retina during development. Therefore, the aim of the study was to investigate the distribution of sulfated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK8-S) as a well preserved form during evolution in the zebrafish retina from 3days post hatching (dph) until adult stage, using immunohistochemistry in order to elucidate the potential role of this protein in the development and maintenance of normal retinal homeostasis. The cellular distribution of CCK in the retina was similar from 3 dph to 40days post fertilization (dpf) when immunoreactivity was ...
Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) is a widely used method to observe retinal layers and follow pathological events in human. Recently, this technique has been adapted for animal imaging. This non-invasive technology brings a cross-sectional visualization of the retina, which permits to observe precisely each layer. There is a clear expansion of the use of this imaging modality in rodents, thus, a precise characterization of the different outer retinal layers observed by SD-OCT is now necessary to make the most of this technology. The identification of the inner strata until the outer nuclear layer has already been clearly established, while the attribution of the layers observed by SD-OCT to the structures corresponding to photoreceptors segments and retinal pigment epithelium is much more questionable. To progress in the understanding of experimental SD-OCT imaging, we developed a method for averaging SD-OCT data to generate a mean image allowing to better delineate layers in the
We studied the uptake of 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) and the synthesis of its phosphorylated product 2DG-6-phosphate (2DG-6P) by the retinas of the clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) and the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana). Autoradiographs showed that most of the retinal 2DG uptake is by the photoreceptor layer. The 2DG accumulation by isolated Xenopus retinas was time and concentration dependent. The Kt for transport was 5.05 mM; Vmax was 6.99 X 10(-10) mol . mg-1 tissue wet weight min-1. The Km for 2DG-6P formation was estimated to be 2-3 mM and Vmax to be approximately 4 x 10(-9) mol . mg-1 min-1. 2DG uptake was inhibited competitively by glucose with a Ki of 2.29 mM. Exposure to light reduced 2DG uptake by no more than 10% as compared with dark uptake. Low sodium or ouabain (10(-4)-10(-7) M) treatment did not significantly alter 2DG uptake as compared with control retinas. In experiments upon intact, anesthetized bullfrogs, light reduced both the total amount of radioactivity acquired by the retina and ...
Cellular Basis for Glaucoma. Researchers at Catalyst for a Cure (CFC) consortium, a division of the Glaucoma Research Foundation, have announced their continuing work in 2011: studying how and why retinal ganglion cells degenerate in people with glaucoma. Retinal ganglion cells are types of neuron located near the inner surface eyes retina. They receive visual images from the photoreceptors and transmit the information to the brain.. These CFC researchers are looking at the onset and progression of glaucoma at the level of the cells and molecular pathways. They have noted that the degeneration of the retinal ganglion cells is related to the loss of connectivity that accompanies glaucoma. According to the CFC: These degenerative changes compromise the neurons ability to process and transmit visual information well before the neurons actually die. The team has determined that the retinal ganglion cells are particularly vulnerable early in the development of glaucoma, when these cells are more ...
The time-course of the light-induced changes in membrane voltage and resistance were measured for single photoreceptors in the retina of Gekko gekko. In the surgically isolated retina, small stimuli directed toward the impaled receptor produced a membrane hyperpolarization the time-course of which was identical to that of the increase in membrane resistance. In the eyecup preparation nearly identical time-courses were evoked only after perfusion of the vitreous surface with solution having high (Mg++). Disparate time-courses were obtained in (a) the isolated retina when large or displaced stimuli were used, and (b) the eyecup preparation when it was treated normally (see Pinto and Pak. 1974. J. Gen. Physiol. 64:49) and when it was exposed to aspartate ions or hypoxia. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that the receptor potential (elicited in the impaled receptor as a result of quanta only it captures) is generated by a single ionic process that decreases membrane conductance. ...

The retina is an inverted stack of neurons requiring light to traverse its full thickness before being absorbed by photoreceptors to initiate vision (1). Retinal neurons anterior to photoreceptors-including ganglion cells (GCs)-are therefore nearly transparent and well index matched to surrounding cells. These properties, combined with tight packing of the GCs, ocular blur, and retina motion, make these neurons extremely challenging to image in the living human eye (2⇓-4). Ex vivo studies overcome these by removing the retina and using stains and fluorescent markers (5⇓-7), two-photon excitation (8, 9), differential interference contrast optics (10), and extreme 3D resolution (11) to enhance contrast. Recently, some of these powerful methods have been applied successfully to animals in vivo as, for example, two-photon excitation (12), but work remains to translate them to human. However, standard methods of imaging the human retina in vivo-including fundus photography, scanning laser ...
Autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH) is a congenital disorder characterized by significantly reduced brain size and mental retardation. Nine genes are currently known to be associated with the condition, all of which encode centrosomal or spindle pole proteins. MCPH is associated with a reduction in proliferation of neural progenitors during fetal development. The cellular mechanisms underlying the proliferation defect, however, are not fully understood. The zebrafish retinal neuroepithelium provides an ideal system to investigate this question. Mutant or morpholino-mediated knockdown of three known MCPH genes (stil, aspm and wdr62) and a fourth centrosomal gene, odf2, which is linked to several MCPH proteins, results in a marked reduction in head and eye size. Imaging studies reveal a dramatic rise in the fraction of proliferating cells in mitosis in all cases, and time-lapse microscopy points to a failure of progression through prometaphase. There was also increased apoptosis in all the

TY - JOUR. T1 - Calcium increases in retinal glial cells evoked by light-induced neuronal activity. AU - Newman, Eric A.. PY - 2005/6/8. Y1 - 2005/6/8. N2 - Electrical stimulation of neurons in brain slices evokes increases in cytoplasmic Ca2+ in neighboring astrocytes. The present study tests whether similar neuron-to-glial signaling occurs in the isolated rat retina in response to light stimulation. Results demonstrate that Müller cells, the principal retinal glial cells, generate transient increases in Ca2+ under constant illumination. A flickering light stimulus increases the occurrence of these Ca2+ transients. Antidromic activation of ganglion cell axons also increases the generation of Müller cell Ca 2+ transients. The increases in Ca2+ transients evoked by light and antidromic stimulation are blocked by the purinergic antagonist suramin and by TTX. The addition of adenosine greatly potentiates the response to light, with light ON evoking large Ca2+ increases in Müller cells. Suramin, ...

Usually affecting both eyes, it occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels on the retina, the light-sensitive tissue located on the back inner-wall of the eye.. Eye doctors commonly separate Diabetic Retinopathy into 2 stages: Non-proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (NPDR) and Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR).. In NPDR, the earliest stage of diabetic retinopathy, microaneurysms occur. They are small areas of balloon-like swelling in the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina. As they increase in number, they tend to cluster and leak fluid into the complex retinal layers.. As the disease progresses, the retinal blood vessels may become irregularly shaped, dilated and leaky. Small hemorrhages may occur and discrete whitish-yellow fat residue can accumulate as a result of the leakage.. The damaged blood vessels can also lose their ability to transport blood, depriving areas of the retina of their nourishing blood and oxygen supply.. Sometimes, the macula, the part of the retina ...
Abstract: Abstract Background The multiplex, lattice mosaic of cone photoreceptors in the adult fish retina is a compelling example of a highly ordered epithelial cell pattern, with single cell width rows and columns of cones and precisely defined neighbor relationships among different cone types. Cellular mechanisms patterning this multiplex mosaic are not understood. Physical models can provide new insights into fundamental mechanisms of biological patterning. In earlier work, we developed a mathematical model of photoreceptor cell packing in the zebrafish retina, which predicted that anisotropic mechanical tension in the retinal epithelium orients planar polarized adhesive interfaces to align the columns as cone photoreceptors are generated at the retinal margin during post-embryonic growth. Methods With cell-specific fluorescent reporters and in vivo imaging of the growing retinal margin in transparent juvenile zebrafish we provide the first view of how cell packing, spatial arrangement, and ...

There is no clear distinction between dendrites and axons in the processes of most of the amacrine cells, though they are often referred to as dendrites in general. Like horizontal cells, amacrine cells ...
Immune intraocular inflammation was induced in primates with homologous retinal outer segments. Perivascular retinitis, uveitis, and edema of the optic nerve head were the prominent acute clinical features. Acute and chronic inflammation was seen in the central and peripheral retinal vessels and granulomatous infiltration was present in the choroid of the uvea. Selective degeneration of the outer segments of the photoreceptor cells of the retina with sparing of the inner segments and of the adjacent pigment epithelium was confirmed by light and electron microscopy. This study strongly suggests that photoreceptor outer segments are highly and specifically immunogenic. The inciting antigen has yet to be identified. Implication of rhodopsin will have to await further studies since it exists as the essential protein in the outer segment.
The cell cycle is a highly complex process that is under the control of several pathways. Failure to regulate and/or complete the cell cycle often leads to cell cycle arrest, which may be followed by programmed cell death (apoptosis). One cell type that has a variety of unique cell cycle properties is the horizontal cell of the chicken retina. In this thesis we aimed to characterize the final cell cycle of retinal horizontal cells. In addition, the regulation of the cell cycle and the resistance to apoptosis of retinal horizontal cells are investigated.. Our results show that the final cell cycle of Lim1-expressing horizontal progenitor cells is heterogenic and three different cell cycle behaviors can be distinguished. The horizontal cells are generated by: (i) an interkinetic nuclear migration with an apical mitosis; (ii) a final cell cycle with an S-phase that is not followed by mitosis, such cells remain with a fully or partially replicated genome; or (iii) non-apical (basal) mitoses. ...
