This study compared the distributions in the normal and light stressed rat retina of the neuroprotective factors bFGF (basic fibroblast growth factor) and CNTF (ciliary neurotrophic factor). Albino Sprague-Dawley rats were raised in cyclic light and some were exposed to bright continuous light for 48 hr, to induce light damage of photoreceptors. Their retinas were prepared as cryosections, immunolabelled with antibodies to bFGF and CNTF and analysed by confocal microscopy. Both factors were… CONTINUE READING
