The neonatal mouse retina remains viable as an explant in serum-supplemented growth media for more than 4 weeks. Interpretation of drug effects on this tissue is compromised by the enigmatic composition of the serum. We sought to remove this ambiguity by culturing neonatal as well as late postnatal mouse retina in serum-free nutrient medium. In this study(More)
Lens epithelium derived growth factor (LEDGF) has been shown to rescue embryonic chick photoreceptor cells from serum starvation and heat stress, light damaged photoreceptor cells in Lewis rats, and photoreceptor cells in RCS rats. The aim of our study is to study the rescue effect of LEDGF on photoreceptor cells in the rd/rd mouse using our long-term serum(More)
PURPOSE To gather information regarding the combination of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), compared with the individual factors when used as a treatment to retard photoreceptor cell loss in rd mouse retina explants and to investigate the observation that the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) influences rod(More)
To increase our understanding of possible chemical impacts on coastal fish populations in the Baltic Sea, Kattegat and Skagerrak, the viviparous eelpout (Zoarces viviparus) was used as sentinel species in two major sampling campaigns (spring and autumn) in 16 different coastal sites. Condition factor (CF), liver somatic index (LSI), gonad somatic index(More)
1. Geschwülste sind in unserem Material in 55,8% der Fälle vorhanden. 2. Primäre Tumormultiplizität kommt in unserem Material sehr häufig vor, 22,5% sämtlicher Sektionsfälle. 3. Die Multiplizität steht in enger Beziehung zum Alter und Geschlecht (evtl. auch zur Rasse). Die Neigung zu multiplem Auftreten nimmt mit den Jahren zu, die Frauen neigen bedeutend(More)
