Journal Club: Visual Function with Aging in Normal and Alzheimer’s Disease Model Mice


This Journal Club highlights the conservation of rod, cone, and melanopsin-expressing intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) between mice and humans, facilitating the translation of visual function studies to clinical settings. It examines early degeneration of ipRGCs in Alzheimer’s models and human post-mortem retinas, and discusses how non-invasive assessments of visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and pupillary light reflex in both species may serve as early biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease. Visual acuity and contrast sensitivity measurements were conducted using Striatech’s OptoDrum.

Unveiling the Mysteries of Albinism: Disrupted Retinal Harmony Due to CyclinD2 Deficiency


Albino mice, with their characteristic white fur and red eyes due to melanin deficiency, experience impaired vision, particularly in retinal development, affecting neuron targeting from the retina to the brain. Slavi et al. identified CyclinD2 as crucial in this process, finding its downregulation disrupts the cell cycle and RGC balance. Increasing intracellular calcium levels to upregulate CyclinD2 restored proper cell cycle progression and depth perception in albino mice, suggesting potential therapies for albinism-related vision disorders.

New Products & Journal Club

Photorefractor, Keratometer

New Products for Myopia Research

For many years, the Photorefractor and Keratometer, invented by Prof. Frank Schaeffel (University of Tübingen), have been the gold standard in myopia research to measure the eyes of small and alert laboratory animals. Striatech is pleased to now offer these products to the research community.

I cannot tell you how happy I am to have the OptoDrum. The fact that it is easy to use and it relies on an unbiased method to determine ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decisions for mouse behavior helps a lot in designing and conducting experiments.
Dr. Abdoulaye Sene, Genentech
The results are finally objective. Until now, it was difficult or even impossible to compare data collected by different users.
Prof. Volker Enzmann, University Bern, Switzerland
The OptoDrum has a user friendly and sturdy design. It is incredibly easy to use and delivers results right away. On top of this, Striatech provides great support!
Prof. Marius Ader, TU Dresden
