To date, 118 loci have been associated with photoreceptor degenerative disease. In this review, we will discuss recent advances in the identification of genes that cause progressive photoreceptor cell death when mutated. We will focus on 12 genes isolated within the last two years that have been shown to be photoreceptor-specific, or that have provided insight into photoreceptor biology and the mechanisms of photoreceptor cell death. To aid in understanding the biologic basis for these diseases… CONTINUE READING
