The present study was aimed to elucidate how retinal microglia/macrophages would respond to neuronal death after intravitreal kainate injection. An increased expression of the complement receptor type 3 (CR3) and an induction of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II and ED-1 antigens were mainly observed in the inner retina after kainate… CONTINUE READING
