The interphotoreceptor matrix (IPM) is a specialized extracellular matrix that surrounds the inner and outer segments of photoreceptors. This matrix contains molecules that may be important in directing photoreceptor differentiation and survival. For example, one molecule that we have previously identified as a component of the IPM, laminin beta2 (formerly known as s-laminin), is implicated in the differentiation of rod photoreceptor cells. Developmentally, laminin beta2 is present before rod… CONTINUE READING
