    ..In addition the RCV1 gene was excluded for presumedly autosomal dominant (ad) PRA in 8 out of the 22 dog breeds investigated. ..

    ..CONCLUSIONS PDC was excluded as a candidate gene for autosomal recessively (ar) transmitted gPRA in 11 of the 20 dog breeds investigated. ..
  3. Dekomien G, Epplen J. Screening of the arrestin gene in dogs afflicted with generalized progressive retinal atrophy. BMC Genet. 2002;3:12 pubmed
    ..Consequently these informative substitutions provide evidence to exclude mutations in the SAG gene as causing retinal degeneration in 14 of the 23 dog breeds with presumed ar transmitted gPRA. ..

    ..Our results suggest distinct roles of RPTPs in cell proliferation and establishing phenotypes of different retinal cells during retinogenesis as well as later in the maintenance of mature retina. ..

    ..This result demonstrates the presence of two distinct gap junction type gene families and indicates a remarkable molecular and functional diversity of gap junction-mediated coupling in the fish retina. ..

    ..These findings illustrate that the lack of protein CCDC66 causes early, slow progressive rod-cone dysplasia in the novel Ccdc66 mutant mouse model, thus providing a sound foundation for the development of therapeutic strategies. ..

    ..004). Our findings demonstrate that photoreceptors and RGCs are protected by ranibizumab treatment. Only amacrine cells cannot be rescued. They seem to be particularly sensitive to ischemic damage and need maybe an earlier intervention. ..
