Survival of melanopsin expressing retinal ganglion cells long term after optic nerve trauma in mice

Sánchez-Migallón MC, Valiente-Soriano FJ, Nadal-Nicolás FM, Di Pierdomenico J, Vidal-Sanz M, Agudo-Barriuso M (2018) Survival of melanopsin expressing retinal ganglion cells long term after optic nerve trauma in mice. Exp Eye Res 174:93-97. doi: 10.1016/j.exer.2018.05.029

Summary: Melanopsin-positive retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) do not respond to axotomy in the same way than the rest of RGCs, and so while image-forming RGCs die in two exponential phases, non-image forming RGCs die only during the first quick phase.

Usage: Retinas were dissected as flat mounts and double-immunostained against melanopsin (1:5000).
