Retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss after optic nerve damage is a hallmark of certain human ophthalmic diseases including ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) and glaucoma. In a rat model of optic nerve transection, in which 80% of RGCs are eliminated within 14 days, caspase-2 was found to be expressed and cleaved (activated) predominantly in RGC. Inhibition of(More)
The presence of serotonin 1A receptor (5-HT(1A)-R) in the hippocampus, amygdala, and most regions of the frontal cortex is essential between postnatal day-5-21 (P5-21) for the expression of normal anxiety levels in adult mice. Thus, the 5-HT(1A)-R plays a crucial role in this time window of brain development. We show that the 5-HT(1A)-R-mediated stimulation(More)
