Enzymatically isolated, noncultured Müller glial cells from human organ donor and patient eyes were studied using the whole-cell-voltage-clamp and the patch-clamp technique. The patients suffered mainly from choroidal melanomas, retinal detachment due to proliferative vitreorentinopathy, glaucomas, and perforating eye injuries. The organ donor eyes were used as a source of corneas for corneal transplantation. Use of the human retinal tissue was approved by the Ethics Committee of the School of… CONTINUE READING
