PURPOSE Proliferative retinal progenitor cells that express neuronal characteristics are potentially useful for developmental studies and as experimental graft material. The continuously-growing R28 retinal cell line has been distributed to over 60 laboratories for a variety of studies, yet has not been fully characterized. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the proliferative R28 retinal cell line contains subpopulations of cells that express neuronal mRNAs and proteins characteristic… CONTINUE READING
