Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Effects of genetic depletion of 11-cis-retinal production or absence of rod phototransduction on retinal degeneration in Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal (KK) mice. (A) Plastic sections of retinas crossing the optic nerve head of 2-month-old Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal Lrattm1Kpal/Lrattm1Kpal (KKLrat-/-) mice. Sections were stained with toluidine blue (upper panels). Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal Lrattm1Kpal/Lrattm1Kpal retina showed increased number of rows of photoreceptor cell nuclei as compared with age-matched KK retina. This finding is consistent with the increased thickness of the outer nuclear layer (ONL) in Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal Lrattm1Kpal/Lrattm1Kpal retina shown in the corresponding spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images (lower panels). (C) SD-OCT images of retinas crossing the optic nerve head from 1-month-old Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal Gnat1tm1Clma/Gnat1tm1Clma (KKGnat1-/-) mice. Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal Gnat1tm1Clma/Gnat1tm1Clma retina displayed decreased thickness of ONL relative to an age-matched Rhotm2.1Kpal/Rhotm2.1Kpal (KK) retina.
