PURPOSE Neuroglycan C (NGC) is a transmembrane chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan present exclusively in central nervous system tissues. In the current study the expression pattern and characterization of NGC during the development of the retina were investigated. METHODS Expressional changes of NGC mRNAs during rat retinal development were examined by semiquantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The localization and characterization of NGC core proteins were… CONTINUE READING
