Rods and cones project to the inner plexiform layer during development
Mature rod and cone photoreceptor cells extend terminals to the outer plexiform layer (OPL), where they form characteristic spherules or pedicles, synapsing with the second‐order neurons of the innerExpand

Organization of the inner retina following early elimination of the retinal ganglion cell population: effects on cell numbers and stratification patterns.
The present study has examined the effects of early ganglion cell elimination upon the organization of the inner retina in the ferret. The population of retinal ganglion cells was removed by opticExpand

Hypoglycemia leads to age-related loss of vision
The retina is among the most metabolically active tissues in the body, requiring a constant supply of blood glucose to sustain function. We assessed the impact of low blood glucose on the vision ofExpand

A developmental switch in the expression of aquaporin-4 and Kir4.1 from horizontal to Müller cells in mouse retina.
PURPOSE In adult retina, aquaporin-4 (AQP4) and inwardly rectifying K(+) (Kir4.1) channels localize to astrocyte and Müller cell membranes facing vascular and vitreous compartments, optimizingExpand

Depletion of calcium stores regulates calcium influx and signal transmission in rod photoreceptors
Tonic synapses are specialized for sustained calcium entry and transmitter release, allowing them to operate in a graded fashion over a wide dynamic range. We identified a novel plasma membraneExpand

Cellular positioning and dendritic field size of cholinergic amacrine cells are impervious to early ablation of neighboring cells in the mouse retina.
We have examined the role of neighbor relationships between cholinergic amacrine cells upon their positioning and dendritic field size by producing partial ablations of this population of cellsExpand

Monitoring mouse retinal degeneration with high-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
Progression of retinal degeneration in a mouse model was studied in vivo with high-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Imaging in 3D with high depth resolution (<3 mum),Expand

Two phases of increased cell death in the inner retina following early elimination of the ganglion cell population
Neurons in the inner nuclear layer (INL) of the vertebrate retina undergo considerable programmed cell death during development, but the determinants of this cell death remain largely unknown. TheExpand

The utility of the rheumatoid factor.
The conclusions made by Shmerling and Delbanco 1 regarding the utility of rheumatoid factor (RF) in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) came as a bit of a surprise, seemingly reversingExpand
