Parvalbumin, a calcium-binding protein thought to buffer intracellular calcium, is expressed in selected neuronal and non-neuronal cell populations. We used a well-characterized antibody directed against parvalbumin to investigate the distribution of parvalbumin in the retina of twelve vertebrate species to evaluate patterns of cellular expression for recurrent functional features. Parvalbumin immunoreactivity was displayed by subpopulations of ganglion, amacrine, bipolar and horizontal cells… CONTINUE READING
