In zebrafish, R-cadherin (cadherin-4 or Cdh4) is expressed in the retina and in retinorecipient brain regions, suggesting that Cdh4 functions during visual system development. Cdh4 function was examined during retinogenesis and retinal axon outgrowth using antisense morpholino oligonucleotides and mutant Cdh4 construct expression. In knockdowns, Cdh4 was(More)
Cadherins are homophilic cell adhesion molecules that control development of a variety of tissues and maintenance of adult structures. In this study, we examined expression of zebrafish cadherin-2 (Cdh2, N-cadherin) and cadherin-4 (Cdh4, R-cadherin) in the visual system of adult zebrafish after eye or optic nerve lesions using immunocytochemistry and(More)
