PURPOSE The goal of this study was to determine the changes in the organization of the retinal cytoskeleton after experimental retinal detachment. METHODS Cat retinas were detached from the retinal pigment epithelium and then processed for Western blot analysis and fluorescence microscopy. Proteins examined included glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), vimentin, tubulin, and actin. Sections were viewed using a laser scanning confocal microscope. RESULTS GFAP and vimentin: At 1 day after… CONTINUE READING
