We have conducted a comprehensive analysis of the relative timing of the terminal mitosis and the onset of rhodopsin expression in rod precursors in the rat retina in vivo. This analysis demonstrated that there are two distinct phases of rod development during retinal histogenesis. For the majority of rod precursors, those born on or after embryonic day 19 (E19), the onset of rhodopsin expression was strongly correlated temporally with cell cycle withdrawal. For these precursors, the lag… Expand
Temporal profiling of photoreceptor lineage gene expression during murine retinal development.
TLDR
Four transitory stages during murine retina photoreceptor differentiation are identified marked by the period of onset of expression of newPhotoreceptor lineage genes, which have clarified the dynamic nature of gene expression during the period when Photoreceptor identities are progressively acquired during development. Expand
Cell Type Differentiation Dynamics in the Developing Porcine Retina
TLDR
The immunohistochemical labeling pattern suggests that phenotypic differentiation of the 7 principal retinal cell types in the porcine retina follows a central-to-peripheral spatio-temporal gradient similar to the one reported for cell proliferation and genesis. Expand
Cellular competence plays a role in photoreceptor differentiation in the developing Xenopus retina.
TLDR
It is concluded that retinal progenitors intrinsically acquire the ability to respond to photoreceptor-inducing cues by a mechanism that runs on a cell autonomous schedule, and that the conserved order of histogenesis is based in part on this competence clock. Expand
Increased proliferation of late-born retinal progenitor cells by gestational lead exposure delays rod and bipolar cell differentiation
TLDR
The results suggest that perturbations during the early proliferative stages of late-born RPCs fated to be rods and BCs ultimately alter the coordinated time-dependent progression of rod and BC differentiation and synaptic development. Expand
Late Retinal Progenitor Cells Show Intrinsic Limitations in the Production of Cell Types and the Kinetics of Opsin Synthesis
TLDR
Although surrounded by 20-fold more embryonic cells, the postnatal cells did not choose to adopt any fates normally produced only by embryonic cells and appeared to be caused at least in part by a secreted factor released by the embryonic cells that requires the LIFRβ/gp130 complex for signaling. Expand
Immunocytochemical analysis of misplaced rhodopsin-positive cells in the developing rodent retina
TLDR
Although most MRCs lack morphological features of photoreceptors, they contain some but not all, elements of the phototransduction cascade, indicating that they are most probably misplaced rods that failed to complete differentiation and integrate into the photoreceptor mosaic. Expand
Persistent expression of cyclin D1 disrupts normal photoreceptor differentiation and retina development
TLDR
These findings are distinct from other mouse models in which the retinoblastoma gene pathway is disrupted and suggest that the IRBP–cyclin D1 mouse model may recapitulate an early step in the development of retin Oblastoma. Expand
Ciliary neurotrophic factor as a transient negative regulator of rod development in rat retina.
TLDR
Investigating whether CNTF transiently inhibits rod differentiation or induces irreversible changes in the developmental fate of rod precursors indicates that the factor plays a role as a transient and reversible negative regulator of rod differentiation. Expand
A model of retinal cell differentiation in the chick embryo

  • Medicine, Biology
  • Progress in Retinal and Eye Research

TLDR
An overview of retinal cell differentiation in the chick embryo is presented in the context of a hypothetical model based on information generated during the last several years, and a summary of the supportive evidence and a critical evaluation of the model are presented. Expand
Abrupt Onset of Mutations in a Developmentally Regulated Gene during Terminal Differentiation of Post-Mitotic Photoreceptor Neurons in Mice
TLDR
There is a brief developmental window, coinciding with the transcriptional activation of the rhodopsin locus, in which somatic mutations of the hRho-GFP fusion protein abruptly begin to appear, suggesting that the r Rhodopsin gene in mature rod cells is less sensitive to mutation than it is in developing rods.

Opsin expression in the rat retina is developmentally regulated by transcriptional activation.
TLDR
It is shown that in the rat, opsin RNA first accumulates to detectable levels at postnatal day 2 (PN2) and that nascent transcripts can be detected at PN1; this is the time when peak numbers of photoreceptor cells are generated by the final division of their neuroepithelial precursors. Expand
Müller-cell-derived leukaemia inhibitory factor arrests rod photoreceptor differentiation at a postmitotic pre-rod stage of development.
TLDR
An inhibitory cell-cell interaction is identified, which may help to explain the long delay that can occur both in vitro and in vivo between cell-cycle withdrawal and rhodopsin expression during rod development. Expand
A temporally regulated, diffusible activity is required for rod photoreceptor development in vitro.
The retina is a relatively simple and well-characterized CNS structure in which cell-cell interactions have been hypothesized to influence cell type determination. By manipulating cell density inExpand
Cell death during differentiation of the retina in the mouse
  • R. W. Young

TLDR
It is suggested that genetically regulated cell death serves to fine‐tune neuronal networks during the terminal stages of development and possible mechanisms resulting in cell degeneration are discussed. Expand
Rods and cones in the mouse retina. II. Autoradiographic analysis of cell generation using tritiated thymidine
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that rods and cones are developmentally distinct cell types in the mouse retina. Expand
Postmitotic cells fated to become rod photoreceptors can be respecified by CNTF treatment of the retina.
TLDR
In agreement with the hypothesis that CNTF plays a role in rod differentiation in vivo, a greater percentage of cells were observed differentiating as rod photoreceptors in mouse retinal explants lacking a functional CNTF receptor, relative to wild-type littermates. Expand
Rod photoreceptor development in vitro: Intrinsic properties of proliferating neuroepithelial cells change as development proceeds in the rat retina
TLDR
A reaggregated cell culture system in which retinal neuroepithelial cells from embryonic rats proliferate extensively and give rise to rod photoreceptors on the same schedule in vitro as they do in vivo is described, suggesting that both cell-cell interactions and an intrinsic program in neuroep ithelial cells determine cell fate in the developing rat retina. Expand
Subsets of retinal progenitors display temporally regulated and distinct biases in the fates of their progeny.
TLDR
Examining antigen expression in progenitor cells during rat retinal development demonstrates that expression of these two markers by progenitors is highly correlated with a bias towards the production of amacrine and horizontal cells. Expand
Retinoic acid promotes differentiation of photoreceptors in vitro.
TLDR
Results suggest that retinoic acid may play a role in the normal development of photoreceptor cells in vivo, and at least one of the RAR alpha receptors have been localized to the developing neural retina. Expand
Correlations between terminal mitosis and differentiated fate of retinal precursor cells in vivo and in vitro: analysis with the "window-labeling" technique.
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that cell fate determination occurs after the time of terminal mitosis, and also support the idea that time of cell birth is not a major cell fate determinant. Expand
