Natoli, Riccardo; Provis, Jan; Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina; Stone, Jonathan

Description

PURPOSE. To examine the response of mouse retina to sustained hyperoxia. Hyperoxia is toxic to photoreceptors after sustained exposure (7-14 days in the C57BL/6J mouse) but has been reported to enhance photoreceptor function after short-term exposure. METHODS. Retinas from the hyperoxia-vulnerable C57BL/6J mouse and from the hyperoxia-resistant BALB/cJ mouse were examined after 0, 3, 7, 14, and 35 days' exposure to 75% oxygen. Quantitative PCR, TUNEL, and immunohistochemical techniques were...[Show more]
