Photoreceptor Cell Biology and Inherited Retinal Degenerations

Front Cover
World Scientific, 2004 - Medical - 441 pages
This important book presents review articles on the cell biology of photoreceptor and RPE cells, as well as the relationship between this cell biology and inherited photoreceptor degeneration. The chapters have been written by leaders in the field. The vision scientist will see this book as a review of photoreceptor and RPE cell biology, and known molecular bases of many forms of retinitis pigmentosa and related retinal degeneration.
