Rod photoreceptor differentiation in fetal and infant human retina

Hendrickson, Anita E; Bumsted O'Brien, Keely; Natoli, Riccardo; Ramamurthy, Visvanathan; Possin, Daniel; Provis, Jan


Human rods and cones are arranged in a precise spatial mosaic that is critical for optimal functioning of the visual system. However, the molecular processes that underpin specification of cell types within the mosaic are poorly understood. The progressive differentiation of human rods was tracked from fetal week (Fwk) 9 to postnatal (P) 8 months using immunocytochemical markers of key molecules that represent rod progression from post-mitotic precursors to outer segment-bearing functional...[Show more]
