Characterization of a dominant cone degeneration in a green fluorescent protein-reporter mouse with disruption of Loci associated with human dominant retinal dystrophy.

Abstract:

PURPOSE. To characterize anatomically and functionally the retinal degeneration observed in a transgenic mouse line (OPN1LW-EGFP) expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) in a subpopulation of cone photoreceptors, and to map the location of the transgenic insertion. METHODS. An anatomic comparison of cone survival was carried out between wild type (WT) and transgenic mice at three postnatal time points (P80, P140, and P245). Retinal function was assessed at P245 by ERG and include...
