Somatostatin is mainly expressed by sparsely occurring amacrine and interplexiform cells in the retina. In this study, we characterized the expression and cellular localization of one of the somatostatin subtype (sst) receptors, sst2A, in the rat retina. The presence of sst2A receptor messenger RNA in retinal extracts was demonstrated by reverse(More)
Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) are innate immune cells that sense viral nucleic acids through endosomal Toll-like receptor (TLR) 7/9 to produce type I interferon (IFN) and to differentiate into potent antigen presenting cells (APC). Engagement of TLR7/9 in early endosomes appears to trigger the IRF7 pathway for IFN production whereas engagement in(More)
