- Absence of glaucoma in DBA/2J mice homozygous for wild-type versions of Gpnmb and Tyrp1Gareth R Howell
The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, USA
BMC Genet 8:45. 2007..We have shown previously that mutations in two genes, Gpnmb and Tyrp1, initiate the iris disease. However, mechanisms involved in the subsequent IOP elevation and optic nerve degeneration remain unclear...
- Clustering of transcriptional profiles identifies changes to insulin signaling as an early event in a mouse model of Alzheimer's diseaseHarriet M Jackson
The Jackson Laboratory, 600 Main Street, Bar Harbor, Maine 04609, USA
BMC Genomics 14:831. 2013..To identify these early events we used transcriptional profiling of mouse brains combined with computational approaches including singular value decomposition and hierarchical clustering...

- Intrinsic axonal degeneration pathways are critical for glaucomatous damageGareth R Howell
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute, The Jackson Laboratory, 600 Main Street, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, USA
Exp Neurol 246:54-61. 2013..For developing new therapies, it will be necessary to clearly define and order the molecular events that lead from glaucomatous insults to axon degeneration. ..

Howard Hughes Medical Institute, The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine 04609, USA
J Clin Invest 122:1246-61. 2012..Together, these data support a model of glaucomatous damage involving monocyte entry into the optic nerve...
- Molecular clustering identifies complement and endothelin induction as early events in a mouse model of glaucomaGareth R Howell
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Bar Harbor, Maine 04609, USA
J Clin Invest 121:1429-44. 2011..Targeting early molecular events, such as complement and endothelin induction, may provide effective new treatments for human glaucoma...
- Mouse genetic models: an ideal system for understanding glaucomatous neurodegeneration and neuroprotectionGareth R Howell
The Jackson Laboratory, 600 Main Street, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, USA
Prog Brain Res 173:303-21. 2008..We describe how mouse models are adding to both the understanding of glaucomatous neurodegeneration and the development of neuroprotective strategies...
- Generating embryonic stem cells from the inbred mouse strain DBA/2J, a model of glaucoma and other complex diseasesLaura G Reinholdt
The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, United States of America
PLoS ONE 7:e50081. 2012..We also demonstrate the utility of DBA/2J ES cells with the creation of conditional knockout allele for Endothelin-2 (Edn2) directly on the DBA/2J strain background...
- Datgan, a reusable software system for facile interrogation and visualization of complex transcription profiling dataGareth R Howell
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Bar Harbor, Maine, USA
BMC Genomics 12:429. 2011..This reusable software system complements existing repositories such as NCBI GEO or EBI ArrayExpress as it allows the construction of searchable databases to maximize understanding of user-selected transcription profiling datasets...
- Inducible nitric oxide synthase, Nos2, does not mediate optic neuropathy and retinopathy in the DBA/2J glaucoma modelRichard T Libby
The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, USA
BMC Neurosci 8:108. 2007..To test the importance of NOS2 for an inherited glaucoma, in this study we both genetically and pharmacologically decreased NOS2 activity in the DBA/2J mouse glaucoma model...
- Retinal ganglion cell dendritic atrophy in DBA/2J glaucomaPete A Williams
School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom
PLoS ONE 8:e72282. 2013..These data may highlight alternative pathways to retinal ganglion cell loss in DBA/2J glaucoma. ..

- The classical complement cascade mediates CNS synapse eliminationBeth Stevens
Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
Cell 131:1164-78. 2007..These findings support a model in which unwanted synapses are tagged by complement for elimination and suggest that complement-mediated synapse elimination may become aberrantly reactivated in neurodegenerative disease...
