Muller cell expression of glutamate cycle related proteins and anti-apoptotic proteins in early human retinal development
AIMS The distribution of glutamate cycle related proteins (glutamine synthetase (GS) and GLAST) and anti-apoptotic proteins (Bcl-2 and Bcl-X) was investigated in Müller cells during early human retinal development, relative to the onset of expression of synaptophysin, a presynaptic vesicle protein. METHODS Using frozen sections of human fetal eyes (13-22 weeks gestation) (n = 10), Bcl-2, Bcl-X, GS, GLAST, and synaptophysin immunoreactivities (IR) were imaged using fluorescence microscopy and...[Show more]
