Abstract  Light exposure (6000 lux, 6 h) caused reactive changes in rat retinal pigmented epithelium and radial glia on day 1. Foci of lesions with virtually complete absence of the layers formed by neurosensory cells appeared on day 7. The number of destructively changed radial gliocytes in these foci was by one order of magnitude higher than in the control. Carovertin reduced destruction of pigmented epithelium and radial glia and reduced the area of lesion foci.

    The present study examines the effects of Cd81-null mutation on the development of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), specifically cell size and number of cells with multiple nuclei. The outlines of RPE in retinal flat mounts were stained with rhodamine-labeled phalloidin and RPE nuclei with...

    Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of loss of central vision in the elderly. The formation of drusen, an extracellular, amorphous deposit of material on Bruch's membrane in the macula of the retina, occurs early in the course of the disease. Although some of the molecular...

    We investigated attachment and migration of human retinal pigment epithelial cells (primary, SV40-transfected and ARPE-19) on nanoscopically defined, two-dimensional matrices composed of parallel-aligned collagen type I fibrils. These matrices were used non-cross-linked (native) or after...
