Two Phases of Rod Photoreceptor Differentiation during Rat Retinal Development
TLDR
The results support the idea that intrinsically distinct populations of rod precursors constitute the two phases of rod development and that the behavior exhibited by the early-born precursor is intrinsically programmed. Expand
Molecular evidence confirms multiple origins of aquatic hyphomycetes.
TLDR
The comparison of nuclear small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences of 30 species assigned 22 to Leotiomycetes, four to Dothideomycettes, three to SordariomycETes, and one to Orbiliomycetus, however, Clavariopsis aquatica and Tumularia aquatica separated from Anguillospora longissima. Expand
Vulnerability of oligodendroglia to glutamate: pharmacology, mechanisms, and prevention
TLDR
The findings raise the possibilities that such glutamate toxicity is operative in the oligodendroglial cell death associated with ischemic processes that disrupt axons, such as periventricular white matter injury of the premature infant, and that novel therapies directed against glutamate transport, glutathione depletion, and free radical attack might be beneficial in prevention of that injury. Expand
Extrinsic and intrinsic factors control the genesis of amacrine and cone cells in the rat retina.
TLDR
It is suggested that postmitotic cells influence progenitors cell fate decisions, but that they do so in a manner restricted by the intrinsic biases of progenitor cells. Expand
The consequences of waiting for cataract surgery: a systematic review
TLDR
Patients who wait more than 6 months for cataract surgery may experience negative outcomes during the wait period, including vision loss, a reduced quality of life and an increased rate of falls. Expand
Late Retinal Progenitor Cells Show Intrinsic Limitations in the Production of Cell Types and the Kinetics of Opsin Synthesis
TLDR
Although surrounded by 20-fold more embryonic cells, the postnatal cells did not choose to adopt any fates normally produced only by embryonic cells and appeared to be caused at least in part by a secreted factor released by the embryonic cells that requires the LIFRβ/gp130 complex for signaling. Expand
10-Year Framingham risk in patients with retinal vein occlusion: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Patients with RVO have an increased 10-year risk for cardiovascular disease and this risk is greatest for male smokers (high risk); these patients may benefit from therapy aimed at controlling their risk factors. Expand
Myxomatous corneal degeneration: a clinicopathological study of six cases and a review of the literature.
TLDR
In most cases, myxomatous changes of the corneal stroma are a degenerative process involving transformation of stromal keratocytes into cells with prominent secretory activity and myofibroblastic differentiation, which is likely under-recognized and under-diagnosed. Expand
Acute orbital inflammatory syndrome following H1N1 immunization.
TLDR
This case illustrates the significance of including a testicular examination or investigating the possibility of extragonadal GCTs when searching for a primary malignancy as the source of uveal metastasis presenting in young adult males. Expand
Medial canthal tophus.
TLDR
A 68-year-old-man was seen in consultation for a suspicious medial canthal lesion that developed over a 2-year period and further inquiry confirmed a history of gout including prior tophi on each elbow. Expand
