N-myc regulates growth and fiber cell differentiation in lens development

Myc proto-oncogenes regulate diverse cellular processes during development, but their roles during morphogenesis of specific tissues are not fully understood. This study found that c-myc regulates cell proliferation in mouse lens development and previous genome-wide studies suggested functional roles for N-myc in developing lens. The role of N-myc was examined in mouse lens development. Genetic […]

Dopamine D1 receptor activation contributes to light-adapted changes in retinal inhibition to rod bipolar cells

Michael D. Flood; Johnnie M. Moore-Dotson; and Erika D. Eggers, University of Arizona. This study was conducted with IRRF support — Erika D. Eggers. (Published August 15, 2018) In this study, it was determined how dopamine D1 receptors in the inner retina contribute to this modulation. It was found that D1 receptor activation significantly decreased […]
