Progressive rod-cone degeneration (prcd) is a late-onset hereditary retinal degeneration characterized by normal development of photoreceptors prior to degeneration and death of visual cells. We reported previously that expression of opsin mRNA and protein decreases prior to visual cell degeneration. To examine the specificity of this reduction, we have… CONTINUE READING
