The mammalian retina contains numerous morphological and physiological subtypes of amacrine cells necessary for integrating and modulating visual signals presented to the output neurons. Among subtypes of amacrine cells grouped by neurotransmitter phenotypes, the glycinergic and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic amacrine cells constitute two major subpopulations. To date, the molecular mechanisms governing the specification of subtype identity of amacrine cells remain elusive. We report here… CONTINUE READING
