Photoreceptor degeneration and loss of retinal function in the C57BL/6-C(2J) mouse
PURPOSE. The C57BL/6-c2J (c2J) mouse strain has been shown in earlier studies to be highly resistant to light damage. Subsequent studies related this resistance to an amino acid substitution (leu450met) in a pigment epithelial enzyme (RPE65), which slowed the rate of rhodopsin regeneration. The present study was conducted to examine patterns of photoreceptor death, electrophysiological function (the ERG) and trophic factor expression over the life of the C57BL/6-c2J retina.
