Our aim is to investigate a common role of the complement system in the pathogenesis of retinal disease, by assessing the expression profile of complement component 3 (C3) in three mechanistically distinct models of retinal degeneration: light-damage, hyperoxia and the degenerative P23H-3 rodent strain. In the light damage model, young adult albino Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were exposed to 1,000 lx for a period of up to 24 h, where at specific time points during and after exposure, animals were...[Show more]
