The objective of this investigation is to determine mechanisms for regulation of retinal calmodulin kinase II (CaMKII). To this end, the expression and activity of CaMKII are examined in the retina of the rdta mouse, in which rod photoreceptors have been genetically ablated [47]. CaMKII levels are compared between rdta mice and the normal, littermate control mice. It is demonstrated that retinal CaMKII protein, enzyme activity and mRNA are significantly increased in response to the genetic… CONTINUE READING
