Background. To evaluate the correlation between ERG, OCT, and microscopic findings in the rd10 mouse. Methods. C57BL/6J wild type mice and rd10 mice were compared at the age of 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 24, and 48 weeks (each age group n = 3) using full-field electroretinography (ERG), spectral domain Optical Coherence Tomography (sd-OCT), fluorescein angiography (FA), Hematoxylin & Eosin histology (HE), and immunohistology (IH). Results. While in wild type mice, the amplitude of a- and b-wave increase...

For vision-threatening retinitis pigmentosa and dry age-related macular degeneration, there are no United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved treatments. We identified, biosynthesized, purified, and characterized lens epithelium-derived growth factor fragment (LEDGF1–326) as a novel protein therapeutic. LEDGF1–326 was produced at about 20 mg/liter of culture when expressed in the Escherichia coli system, with about 95% purity and aggregate-free homogeneous population with a mean h...

The rd1 mouse is a well-established animal model for human retinitis pigmentosa (RP). We used electroretinography (ERG) to evaluate retinal function and postembedding immunocytochemistry to determine the changes in cellular amino acid expression in the normal (C57Bl6) and degenerating mouse retina (rd1), as a function of age during development and the onset of degeneration. In the normal mouse retina, photoreceptoral and post-photoreceptoral ERG responses improved simultaneously from eye-opening...

Retinal photoreceptors die during retinal synaptogenesis in a portion of retinal degeneration. Whether cone bipolar cells establish regular retinal mosaics and mature morphologies, and resist degeneration are not completely understood. To explore these issues, we backcrossed a transgenic mouse expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) in one subset of cone bipolar cells (type 7) into rd1 mice, a classic mouse model of retinal degeneration, to examine the development and survival of co...

Blinding diseases of the retina are frequently characterized by loss of photoreceptor cells. The retinal degeneration 10 (rd10) mouse expresses a mutant form of rod phosphodiesterase leading to autosomal recessive photoreceptor degeneration. In contrast to rd1, rd10 mice have remaining rod function mimicking more closely most forms of human Retinitis Pigmentosa. Here we use morphology, biochemistry, retinal whole mounts, real-time PCR, Western blotting and immunofluorescence to compile a compreh...

Background Recently, a transgenic rabbit with rhodopsin Pro 347 Leu mutation was generated as a model of retinitis pigmentosa (RP), which is characterized by a gradual loss of vision due to photoreceptor degeneration. The purpose of the current study is to noninvasively visualize and assess time-dependent changes in the retinal structures of a rabbit model of retinal degeneration by using speckle noise-reduced spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).

PURPOSE: The a-wave of the photopic electroretinogram (ERG) of macaque monkeys is made up of the electrical activities of cone photoreceptors and post-photoreceptoral neurons. However, it is not known whether the contributions of these two components change in retinas with inherited photoreceptor degeneration. The purpose of this study was to determine the contributions of cones and post-photoreceptoral neurons to the a-wave of the photopic ERGs in rhodopsin Pro347Leu transgenic (Tg) rabbits. ME...

The normal RPE sheet in the C57BL/6J mouse is subclassified into two major tiling patterns: a regular generally hexagonal array covering most of the surface and a “soft network” near the ciliary body made of irregularly shaped cells. Physics models predict these two patterns based on contractility and elasticity of the RPE cell, and strength of cellular adhesion between cells. We hypothesized and identified major changes in RPE regular hexagonal tiling pattern in rd10 compared to C57BL/6J mice. ...

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited blinding disease characterized by progressive loss of retinal photo-receptors. There are numerous rodent models of retinal degeneration, but most are poor platforms for interventions that will translate into clinical practice. The rabbit possesses a number of desirable qualities for a model of retinal disease including a large eye and an existing and substantial knowledge base in retinal circuitry, anatomy, and ophthalmology. We have analyzed degeneratio...

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) represent two major retinal degenerative diseases that lead progressively to blindness. Both RP and AMD target photoreceptors constituting the outer retina. Unlike lower vertebrates, the retina in higher vertebrates, including humans, is not significantly regenerated after injury or disease, leading to an interest in stem cell transplantation therapy to restore damaged photoreceptors. The cause of AMD has yet to be uncovered, a...

Abstract Porcine models of ophthalmological diseases are often used in pre-clinical translational studies due to pigs’ similarities to humans. In particular, the iodoacetic acid (IAA) model of photoreceptor degeneration seems to mimic well the endstage phenotype of human pathologies as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration, with high potential for prosthesis/retinal devices testing. IAA is capable of inducing photoreceptor death by blockage of glycolysis, and its effects on t...

PURPOSE: We investigated structural changes in the retina by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a feline model of retinal degeneration using iodoacetic acid (IAA). METHODS: We examined 22 eyes of 11 felines over 2 years of age. The felines had fasted for 12 hours and were intravenously injected with IAA 20 mg/kg of body weight. OCT (Spectralis OCT) was performed at the point where the ends of the retinal vessels collected in the lateral direction from the optic nerve head and area centr...
