Disease of the ornithine-proline pathway: delta 1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase deficiency in the retina of retinal degeneration mice.

Abstract

In bovine ocular tissues, cornea and retina-including choroid provide the intracellular proline synthetic pathway from ornithine, but not from glutamate. In C3H retinal degeneration mice, P5C reductase activity in the retina and choroid was decreased to about one-third that of CRJ control mice in the specific activity after the tenth day. The activity of an… (More)
