  1. 1. Teleost retina : a model for study neurogenesis and angiogenesis

    Author : Satish Srinivas Kitambi; Agneta Mode; Jarema Malicki; Per Kylster; Thomas Burglin; Finn Hallböök; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Teleost models, zebrafish and medaka have become popular models to study various aspects of developmental biology and genetics. The rapid embryonic development, transparent embryos and the availability of many mutants for various developmental and molecular pathways contribute to the usefulness of these models. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental Injury to the Visual System : Molecular Studies of the Retina

    Author : Ulrika Lönngren; Finn Hallböök; Fredrik Ghosh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; retina; injury; ischemia; gene expression; brimonidine; alpha-2-adrenergic agonist; neuroprotection; growth factors; apoptosis; Müller cells; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Retinal ganglion cells play a crucial role in the relay of visual signals from the eye to the brain. This cell type is affected and eventually lost in the eye disease glaucoma, resulting in progressive and irreversible loss of vision. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of gold- and silver nanoparticles on the retina

    Author : Patrik Maximilian Bauer; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Keywords : Microglia; Retina; In vitro; Nanoparticles;

    Abstract : Over the past decade, a massive increase in the use of nanomaterials and nanoparticles (NPs) in both commercial and medical applications has occurred. Medical applications include advanced drug delivery vehicles, imaging and hyper thermic therapies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biochemical and biomechanical modulation of the in vitro retina

    Author : Linnéa Taylor; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Retina; in vitro; modulation; biomechanics; glutamate; GDNF; stretch; Müller cells; Photoreceptors; gliosis;

    Abstract : The porcine retinal explant culture paradigm offers the possibility to study retinal health, disease and development independently from the surrounding tissues of the eye. Retina-intrinsic effects of molecular and mechanical cues on the isolated retinal sheet can thus be studied with great precision. READ MORE

  5. 5. Control of early development of the lens and the retina

    Author : Tanushree Pandit; Lena Gunhaga; Paola Bovolenta; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lens; retina; BMP; FGF; chick; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The nervous system is composed of two separate compartments, the central and the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) composed mainly of sensory organs transmits sensory information to the central nervous system (CNS) comprising the brain and the spinal cord. READ MORE
