PURPOSE. To assess neurotrophic factor upregulation in the retina after damage to the optic nerve and relate that regulation to changes in photoreceptor stability and function. METHODS. Retinas of adult pigmented (Long-Evans) rats were examined at successive times (1-60 days) after unilateral optic nerve section. The distribution and expression of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and basic flbroblast growth factor (FGF-2) and their receptor elements FGFR1 and CNTFRα were studied with...[Show more]
