    Impaired ABCA1/ABCG1-mediated lipid efflux in the mouse retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) leads to retinal degeneration

    Federica Storti et al.
    Lipid efflux by the retinal pigment epithelium is crucial for proper retinal integrity and function, and its impairment may contribute to diseases like age-related macular degeneration.

    Activating the regenerative potential of Müller glia cells in a regeneration-deficient retina

    Katharina Lust, Joachim Wittbrodt
    Müller glia cells in the medaka (Oryzias latipes) retina act as lineage restricted progenitors which only regenerate photoreceptors but can be activated to perform as potent stem cells using Sox2.

    Absence of TGFβ signaling in retinal microglia induces retinal degeneration and exacerbates choroidal neovascularization

    Wenxin Ma et al.
    TGFβ signaling to retinal microglia is central to the regulation of neuroinflammatory responses relevant to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in the developed world.

    SARM1 depletion rescues NMNAT1-dependent photoreceptor cell death and retinal degeneration

    Yo Sasaki et al.
    A mouse model of retinal degeneration reveals a common mechanism for axonal degeneration and photoreceptor cell death and identifies SARM1 as a therapeutic candidate for retinopathies.

    Homeostatic plasticity in the retina is associated with maintenance of night vision during retinal degenerative disease

    Henri Leinonen et al.
    Mouse retina manifests homeostatic plasticity and adapts to photoreceptor degeneration to resist visual decline.

    Small molecule Photoregulin3 prevents retinal degeneration in the RhoP23H mouse model of retinitis pigmentosa

    Paul A Nakamura et al.
    Regulating rod gene expression with a small molecule ligand for the orphan nuclear receptor Nr2e3 rescues photoreceptors from degeneration in a mouse model of retinitis pigmentosa.

    Tgfb3 collaborates with PP2A and notch signaling pathways to inhibit retina regeneration

    Mi-Sun Lee et al.
    Tgfb3 inhibits Muller glial cell reprogramming and drives Muller cell quiescence in the injured zebrafish retina, thereby inhibiting retina regeneration.

    KIT ligand protects against both light-induced and genetic photoreceptor degeneration

    Huirong Li et al.
    A combination of in vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrate a cell-autonomous role of the KIT ligand/KIT signaling pathway in protecting retinal photoreceptor cells from environmentally or genetically caused degeneration.

    Hypoxia-induced metabolic stress in retinal pigment epithelial cells is sufficient to induce photoreceptor degeneration

    Toshihide Kurihara et al.
    Mouse models in which hypoxia can be genetically triggered in retinal pigmented epithelial cells show that hypoxia-induced metabolic stress alone can lead to photoreceptor atrophy/dysfunction.

    Neural retina-specific Aldh1a1 controls dorsal choroidal vascular development via Sox9 expression in retinal pigment epithelial cells

    So Goto et al.
    Neural retina-derived retinoic acids synthesized by Aldh1a1 control choroidal vascular development by regulating RPE-secreted VEGF.
