The mammalian retina contains more than 50 distinct neuronal types, which are broadly classified into several major classes: photoreceptor, bipolar, horizontal, amacrine, and ganglion cells. Although some of the developmental mechanisms involved in the differentiation of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) are beginning to be understood, there is little information regarding the genetic and molecular determinants of the distinct morphologies of the 15-20 mammalian RGC cell types.
