Identification of a nervous tissue-specific chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan, neurocan, in developing rat retina.

Abstract

PURPOSE To identify the expression of neurocan, a nervous tissue-specific chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan, in retina and to elucidate its changes during development. METHODS Expressional changes of neurocan mRNAs in developing rat retinas were investigated by a semiquantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The localization… (More)
