Novel retinal and cone photoreceptor transcripts revealed by human macular expression profiling.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: The macula is essential for visual acuity. It contains many more cone photoreceptors than does the peripheral retina. In this study, macular gene expression was compared with that in the rod-rich peripheral retina. METHODS: Two-millimeter foveomacular and four-millimeter macular punches from human donor eyes, in addition to sections of midperipheral retina, were used to study differential gene expression. Multiple microarray experiments were combined with quantitative PCR and bioinf...
