Table 1. Comparison of apoptotic time courses of mouse models for retinal degeneration

All three mouse models compared show an apoptotic peak during retinal degeneration. Nevertheless, the time points of the apoptotic peak differ between the mouse models. The asterisk ("*") in the "Reference" column indicates that this entry is based on the data reported herein.
