Inappropriate activity of the complement cascade contributes to the pathophysiology of several neurodegenerative conditions. This study sought to determine if components of the complement cascade are synthesized in the retina following the development of ocular hypertension (OHT) and if complement accumulates in association with retinal ganglion cells.(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was to describe the detailed localization of the novel oxygen-binding molecules, neuroglobin (Ngb) and cytoglobin (Cygb), in mammalian retinas and to determine whether Ngb and Cygb are neuronal or glial proteins in the retina. METHODS Antibodies directed against Ngb and Cygb were used to examine their patterns of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the distribution of 2 intracellular oxygen-carrying molecules, neuroglobin (NGB) and cytoglobin (CYGB), in specific retinal cell types of human retinas. METHODS Specific antibodies against NGB and CYGB were used in immunohistochemical studies to examine their distribution patterns in human retinal sections. Double-labeling studies(More)
