Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells.

Do MTH, Yau K (2010) Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells. Physiol Rev 90(4):1547-1581. doi: 10.1152/physrev.00013.2010

Summary: This review presents recent data that has established the importance of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRPG) in nonimage visual functions. The use of melanopsin-SAP (Cat. #IT-44) in both mice and rats is discussed. It is of note that depletion of ipRPG’s using melanopsin-SAP resulted in deficits in communication to nonimage regions of the brain, but image vision appeared normal.
