PURPOSE The primate retina contains a specialized, cone-rich macula, which mediates high acuity and color vision. The spatial resolution provided by the neural retina at the macula is optimized by stereotyped retinal blood vessel and ganglion cell axon patterning, which radiate away from the macula and reduce shadowing of macular photoreceptors. However,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the expression and localization of complement system mRNA and protein in a light-induced model of progressive retinal degeneration. METHODS Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were exposed to 1000 lux of bright continuous light (BCL) for up to 24 hours. At time points during (1-24 hours) and after (3 and 7 days) exposure, the animals were(More)
PURPOSE Recently we identified high levels of expression of Eph-A6 in the macula of developing human retina and showed localization of Eph-A6 to ganglion cells (GC). In the present study we investigated the expression of some members of the ephrin family in developing primate retina, including the topography of Eph-A6 expression, and its ligands, in(More)
PURPOSE To examine in detail the time-course of changes in Zif268, Egr-1, NGFI-A, and Krox-24 (ZENK) and pre-proglucagon (PPG) RNA transcript levels in the chick retina during periods of increased ocular growth induced by form-deprivation and negative-lens wear. To further elucidate the role of ZENK in the modulation of ocular growth, we investigated the(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the cellular expression patterns of antiangiogenic factors differentially regulated in the fetal human macula. METHODS RNA was extracted from macular, nasal, and surround biopsies of three human fetal retinas at midgestation. Relative levels of expression of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP),(More)
The macula is a unique and important region in the primate retina that achieves high resolution and color vision in the central visual field. We recently reported data obtained from microarray analysis of gene expression in the macula of the human fetal retina (Kozulin et al., Mol Vis 15:45–59, 1). In this paper, we describe the preliminary analyses(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the effects of short term and extended viewing of virtual imagery using the Binocular Viewer (new generation bi-ocular viewer) on the visual system of children, and compared these effects with that of viewing a high definition television (HDTV) display. METHODS Sixty children aged 5 to 16 years viewed 30 min of virtual imagery(More)
