Investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying the retinal degeneration observed in the P347S mutant rhodopsin model of retinitis pigmentosa.

Malanson, Katherine.

Abstract: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetically heterogeneous group of diseases that causes blindness. RP can be inherited as an X-linked, autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant disease. Mutations within the rhodopsin gene account for approximately 25% of autosomal dominantly inherited RP cases. Therefore understanding the mechanisms causing rhodopsin-mediated RP has a significant health i... read more
