Diabetic hyperglycemia reduces Ca2+ permeability of extrasynaptic AMPA receptors in AII amacrine cells (American Physiological Society, 2015-09)There is increasing evidence that diabetic retinopathy is a primary neuropathological disorder that precedes the microvascular pathology associated with later stages of the disease. Recently, we found evidence for altered ...Journal article
Disruption of a neural microcircuit in the rod pathway of the mammalian retina by diabetes mellitus (Society for Neuroscience, 2015-04)Diabetes leads to dysfunction of the neural retina before and independent of classical microvascular diabetic retinopathy, but previous studies have failed to demonstrate which neurons and circuits are affected at the ...Journal article
Functional NMDA receptors are expressed by both AII and A17 amacrine cells in the rod pathway of the mammalian retina (American Physiological Society, 2016-01)At many glutamatergic synapses, non-N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) and NMDA receptors are coexpressed postsynaptically. In the mammalian retina, glutamatergic rod bipolar cells are presynaptic to two rod amacrine cells (AII ...Journal article
