Localization of trkB and low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor mRNA in the developing rat retina

Localization of trkB and low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor mRNA in the developing rat retina The localization of trkB and low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (LNGFR) mRNAs in the developing rat retina was examined by in situ hybridization. TrkB mRNA was expressed in the ganglion cell layer (GCL), in the inner border of the neuroblastic layer (NBL), and the inner border of the inner nuclear layer (INL). LNGFR mRNA was expressed in the GCL, in almost full thickness of the NBL, and in the intermediate part of the INL. Although both trkB mRNA and LNGFR mRNA were expressed in the GCL, the expression pattern was different between these mRNAs; trkB mRNA was expressed in almost all cells in the GCL uniformly and the expression of LNGFR mRNA varied greatly from cell to cell. In addition, the expression of both mRNAs, especially LNGFR mRNA seemed to be down-regulated at P7, when programmed cell death of the RGCs was prominent. These observations indicate that LNGFR may modulate the function of trkB and that trkB and LNGFR play important roles in the development and maintenance of the RGCs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Neuroscience Letters Elsevier

Abstract

The localization of trkB and low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (LNGFR) mRNAs in the developing rat retina was examined by in situ hybridization. TrkB mRNA was expressed in the ganglion cell layer (GCL), in the inner border of the neuroblastic layer (NBL), and the inner border of the inner nuclear layer (INL). LNGFR mRNA was expressed in the GCL, in almost full thickness of the NBL, and in the intermediate part of the INL. Although both trkB mRNA and LNGFR mRNA were expressed in the GCL, the expression pattern was different between these mRNAs; trkB mRNA was expressed in almost all cells in the GCL uniformly and the expression of LNGFR mRNA varied greatly from cell to cell. In addition, the expression of both mRNAs, especially LNGFR mRNA seemed to be down-regulated at P7, when programmed cell death of the RGCs was prominent. These observations indicate that LNGFR may modulate the function of trkB and that trkB and LNGFR play important roles in the development and maintenance of the RGCs.
