Location of CNTFR(alpha) on outer segments: Evidence of the site of action of CNTF in rat retina

Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina; Bisti, Silvia; Stone, Jonathan


Ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) is an important factor in the retina's mechanisms of self-protection. It is generated by retinal glial cells in response to stress, and has a significant protective effect on retinal neurones. In this study we have identified the location of the α component of the CNTF receptor complex (CNTFRα) in rat retina, using immunohistochemistry and high-resolution confocal microscopy. The major location of CNTFRα is on photoreceptor outer segments. More scattered,...[Show more]
