Search the Transgenic Mouse dataset by entering a gene symbol or mouse line name into the search box. #Retinal Projectome data includes four experiments with vertical mount sections of the retina. You will be prompted with suggestions once you have started typing. Click "Search" or hit the Enter key.


Representative retinas were sectioned in the vertical plane for characterization of morphology and co-localization with markers for well defined retinal ganglion cell (RGC) types. Four markers were used; :

  • VAChT (vesicular acetylcholine transporter) - a marker of inner plexiform layers,
  • CART (cocaine-amphetamine related transcript) - a marker of ON/OFF direction selective retinal ganglion cells,
  • OPN osteopontin - a marker of large/ dephosphorylated neurofilament-positive RGCs,


  • Brn3a which labels ~80% of all RGCs and is a Pit/Oct/Unc (POU) domain transcription factor.

Each experiment shows the GFP viral tracer infection in green, the marker in red and a DAPI stain in blue.
