Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: We surveyed the potential contacts between an identified type of bipolar cell and retinal ganglion cells in the mouse. Methods: We created a double transgenic strain by crossing two existing mouse strains (line 357 and line GFP–M). Immunocytochemistry and intracellular dye injection were applied in present study. Results and Conclusions: By studying in three dimensions the juxtaposition of their processes, we could learn which ganglion cell types are potential synaptic targets of the line 357 bipolar cell. Of 12 ganglion cell types observed, 10 types could be definitively ruled out as major synaptic targets of the 357 bipolar cells. One type of monostratified ganglion cell and one bistratified cell tightly co–fasciculate with axon terminals of the 357 bipolar cells.
