Identification of MFRP Mutations in Chinese Families with High Hyperopia.
Shenzhen, China. In Optom Vis Sci, Jan 2016
PURPOSE: Mutations in MFRP have been reported to cause autosomal recessive posterior microphthalmia, nanophthalmos, and an ophthalmic syndrome characterized by posterior microphthalmia, high hyperopia, retinitis pigmentosa, foveoschisis, and optic disc drusen.
Improvement of retinal function in L-ORD after prolonged dark adaptation.
Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. In Can J Ophthalmol, Apr 2015
METHODS: International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision standard DA electroretinograms (ERGs) were performed before and after a period of extended dark adaptation (16 hours) in a cohort of patients heterozygous for the Ser163Arg mutation in C1QTNF5.

Retinal degeneration mutants in the mouse.
Bar Harbor, United States. In Vision Res, 2002
Sixteen naturally occurring mouse mutants that manifest degeneration of photoreceptors in the retina with preservation of all other retinal cell types have been found: retinal degeneration (formerly rd, identical with rodless retina, r, now Pde6b(rd1)); Purkinje cell degeneration (pcd); nervous (nr); retinal degeneration slow (rds, now Prph(Rd2)); retinal degeneration 3 (rd3); motor neuron degeneration (mnd); retinal degeneration 4 (Rd4); retinal degeneration 5 (rd5, now tub); vitiligo (vit, now Mitf(mi-vit)); retinal degeneration 6 (rd6); retinal degeneration 7 (rd7, now Nr2e3(rd7)); neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (nclf); retinal degeneration 8 (rd8); retinal degeneration 9 (Rd9); retinal degeneration 10 (rd10, now Pde6b(rd10)); and cone photoreceptor function loss (cpfl1).
