Retinal stem cells: promising candidates for retina transplantation.
Cell and Tissue Research
Publication types: Journal Article ; Review
Stem cell transplantation is widely considered as a promising therapeutic approach for photoreceptor degeneration, one of the major causes of blindness. In this review, we focus on the biology of retinal stem cells (RSCs) and progenitor cells (RPCs) isolated from fetal, postnatal, and adult animals, with emphasis on those from rodents and humans. We discuss the origin of RSCs/RPCs, the markers expressed by these cells and the conditions for the isolation, culture, and differentiation of these cells in vitro or in vivo by induction with exogenous stimulation.
