Abstract

Recent progress has uncovered a wealth of molecular cues required for the development and function of Retinal Ganglion Cells, the neurons that carry visual information from the eye to the brain. In most cases, patterns of gene expression cover these neuronal cell types in a combinatorial, partially overlapping fashion. This suggests that neuronal cell type definition, both during development and as mature functioning neurons are driven by largely intersectional molecular mechanisms. We take advantage of these partially overlapping expression patterns to design molecular genetic tools for the definition and characterization of various RGC types
