Changes in the expression of Pax6 RNA transcripts in the retina during periods of altered ocular growth in chickens

Ashby, Regan; Megaw, Pam; Morgan, Ian

Description

Genome-wide mapping studies have suggested a possible role for Pax6 in the development of myopia. We therefore investigated the expression of Pax6 RNA transcripts in the chicken retina during periods of increased ocular growth, induced by form-deprivation and negative lens-wear, and during periods of decreased ocular growth, induced by diffuser removal from previously form-deprived eyes, and plus lens-wear. Levels of Pax6 RNA transcripts in the chicken retina were measured using...[Show more]
