Differential expression of anti-angiogenic factors and guidance genes in the developing macula

Kozulin, Peter; Natoli, Riccardo; Bumsted O'Brien, Keely; Madigan, Michelle; Provis, Jan

Description

Purpose: The primate retina contains a specialized, cone-rich macula, which mediates high acuity and color vision. The spatial resolution provided by the neural retina at the macula is optimized by stereotyped retinal blood vessel and ganglion cell axon patterning, which radiate away from the inacula and reduce shadowing of macular photoreceptors. However, the genes that mediate these specializations, and the reasons for the vulnerability of the macula to degenerative disease, remain obscure....[Show more]
