The Role of Nogo-A in Visual Deficits Induced by Retinal Injury

Julius Baya Mdzomba, PhD - Université Laval

The membrane protein Nogo-A is a potent inhibitor of neuronal growth. After retinal injury, such as after ischemic insults or during diabetic retinopathy, Nogo-A can prevent recovery and healing. In the presented study, Mdzomba et al show that both local and systemic inhibition of Nogo-A can improve recovery. They used Striatech's OptoDrum to follow visual function and to track the effects of visual insult and recovery in vivo and in real time.

Customer voices

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!
