Reduction of the melanin precursor DOPA associated with albinism leads to spatiotemporal disturbances in retinal neurogenesis and thus seems to be responsible for numerous neuronal alterations found in albino retinae. To investigate whether these cellular alterations are reflected in retinal neurotransmitter concentrations we compared the levels of GABA and(More)
In this study we tested whether the critical anatomical substrate for retinal direction selectivity is altered in albino mammals. We used dual immunostaining for GABA and choline acetyltransferase and quantitatively analyzed the number of double-labelled starburst amacrine cells in wild-type and albino rats. In albino rats, the percentage of ON-amacrine(More)
