Although neurotrophin actions in the survival of specific retinal cell types have been identified, the biological functions for neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) in early retinal development remain unclear. Having localized NT-3 and trk C expression at early developmental stages when retinal neuroepithelial progenitor cells predominate, we sought to modulate NT-3(More)
