MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified; Disease Models, Animal; Electroretinography; Eye Proteins / biosynthesis; Eye Proteins / genetics; Gene Deletion; Immunohistochemistry; Macular Degeneration / metabolism; Macular Degeneration / pathology; Macular Degeneration / physiopathology; Membrane Proteins / biosynthesis; Membrane Proteins / genetics; Microscopy, Fluorescence; Mutation; Retina / metabolism; Retina / pathology; Retina / physiopathology; Swine
TL;DR: These transgenic pigs provide unique animal models for examining macular degeneration and STGD3 pathogenesis and direct fluorescence microscopy indicated that the Y270terEYFP protein is expressed in photoreceptors and mislocalised within the cell. (via Semantic Scholar)
