We have isolated and characterized three homologs of mammalian rds/peripherin from Xenopus retinae. One (xrds38) is likely the Xenopus ortholog, while the other two (xrds36 and -35) are more distant relatives. By immunocytochemical analysis of retinal sections, xrds38 is distributed in both rod and cone photoreceptors, while xrds36 and xrds35 are present in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the hydration and the levels of free and total sodium in human corneal stromata preserved for up to 21 days in a dextran and chondroitin sulfate-based corneal storage medium (Optisol-GS, Chiron IntraOptics, Irvine, Calif) and to evaluate the effect of epithelial removal on stromal sodium and hydration parameters. METHODS Stromal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the hydration, and the levels of free, total and bound sodium in fresh rabbit corneal stromas and also those preserved for up to 21 days in Optisol-GS. The effect of epithelial removal on stromal sodium and hydration parameters was also evaluated. Trends in stromal hydration and sodium environment were compared to results we previously(More)
