Figure 1. Temporal relationship between photoreceptor apoptosis and CD11b-labeled microglial cells in the outer nuclear layer of rds mouse retina
The number of TUNEL-positive photoreceptor cells peaked at P17, which was significantly higher than at P14 and P21. At P17 the activated mciroglia was first presented in the outer nuclear layer (ONL). At P28 the number of activated mciroglia in the ONL reached a peak, which was significantly higher than at P21 and P42. Data were expressed as mean±SD. A p<0.01 (*) was considered significant compared with P14 and P21 in TUNEL studies. A p<0.01 (hash mark) was considered significant compared with P21 and P42 in microglial studies.
