Expression pattern of the melanopsin-like (cOpn4m) and VA opsin-like genes in the developing chicken retina and neural tissues.

Abstract

We examined the expression pattern of melanopsin-like (cOpn4m) and VA opsin-like (cVAL) genes during chicken development. Two types of cOpn4m transcripts, distinct in their carboxyl terminals were found, as is the case for the chicken melanopsin (cOpn4) reported previously. The expression of cOpn4m was restricted to the developing retina, specifically to a… (More)
