Retinoblastoma: messenger RNA for interphotoreceptor retinoid binding protein.


Surgically excised retinoblastomas from 14 patients (age range nine months to two years) were assessed by immunocytochemistry for the expression of photoreceptor-specific proteins and neuronal and glial cell markers. Adjacent tissues were examined for messenger RNA expression of interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein (IRBP) using Northern blots. For… (More)
