Effects of light and darkness on the apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in young carp were measured by TUNEL method after transection of the optic nerve. Following the operation, the fish were kept under one of four regimens; constant darkness (DD), constant light (LL), 12 hr light and 12 hr dark (LD) and 3 hr of flickering light followed by 21 hr in the dark (FL). On day 3, the highest ratio of apoptotic RGCs was seen under conditions of DD, followed by LL, LD, and FL. On day 6, the… CONTINUE READING
