Accumulation of of iron in Cptm1Hrs/Cptm1Hrs Hephsla/Y retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptors

homeostasis/metabolism
• retinas exhibit increased iron at 5-6 months of age, with highest levels in the RPE and photoreceptor outer segments (J:92620)
• levels of the cytosolic iron storage protein ferritin are increased in retinas (J:92620)
• iron accumulation in the retina and ciliary body (J:136925)

vision/eye
• subretinal macrophage infiltration is seen by 9 months of age
• iron accumulation in the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium of the ciliary body at 7 months of age
• levels of ferritin light chain (L-ferritin) are increased in the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium of 7 month old mutants
• retinas exhibit increased iron at 5-6 months of age, with highest levels in the RPE and photoreceptor outer segments (J:92620)
• neurosensory retinas (without the RPE) have higher iron levels at 3 and 6 months of age than wild-type mice (J:136925)
• levels of transferrin receptor are undetectable in the retina except for a thin layer near the junction of photoreceptor inner and outer segments (J:136925)
• levels of isoprostane F2alpha-VI are increased in 6 month old retinas, indicating oxidative stress (J:136925)
• age dependent subretinal neovascularization (J:92620)
(J:136925)
• local photoreceptor degeneration
• age dependent retinal epithelium hypertrophy, hyperplasia and necrosis (J:92620)
• iron accumulation in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in 3 and 6 month old mutants (J:136925)
• accumulation of lipofuscin-like material in the retinal pigment epithelium with age (J:136925)
• retinas of mutants surviving 6-9 months exhibit focal areas of hypopigmentation in the midperipheral retina
• age dependent retinal epithelium hyperplasia (J:92620)
(J:136925)
• mutants surviving 6-9 months exhibit retinal degeneration (J:92620)
• age-dependent retinal degeneration with neovascularization that is first visible at 7 months of age; degeneration consists of RPE hyperplasia, RPE hypertrophy, and focal photoreceptor degeneration characterized by thinning of the ONL, inner segment vacuolization, and loss of outer segments (J:136925)
• by 12-13 months of age, hypertrophic RPE cells are seen in 90% of the total retinal length, loss of inner and outer segments, thinning of the ONL, and subretinal macrophage infiltration, focal areas of neovascularization (J:136925)
• choroidal thinning
• 9-month old mutants show activated complement in Bruch's membrane

cardiovascular system
• age dependent subretinal neovascularization (J:92620)
(J:136925)

nervous system
• local photoreceptor degeneration

pigmentation
• age dependent retinal epithelium hypertrophy, hyperplasia and necrosis (J:92620)
• iron accumulation in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in 3 and 6 month old mutants (J:136925)
• accumulation of lipofuscin-like material in the retinal pigment epithelium with age (J:136925)
• retinas of mutants surviving 6-9 months exhibit focal areas of hypopigmentation in the midperipheral retina
• age dependent retinal epithelium hyperplasia (J:92620)
(J:136925)

immune system
• subretinal macrophage infiltration is seen by 9 months of age
