Light-evoked FOS induction within the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of melanopsin knockout (Opn4-/-) mice: a developmental study.
The aims of this study were to address three related questions: (1) Do the photosensitive ganglion cells of the mouse convey light information to the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) at P0? (2) Do the differentiating rods and cones contribute to light-evoked FOS induction within the murine SCN at P4? (3) How does light-evoked FOS induction within the SCN of melanopsin knockout (Opn4-/-) mice differ at P4 and P14? Our approaches took advantage of the published descriptions of murine ocular develop...Expand abstract
