Optogenetics research uses medium-wavelength cone opsin to re-engineer retinal ganglion cells for retinitis pigmentosa

Researchers at the University of Berkeley have reported that the vertebrate medium wavelength cone opsin (MW-opsin) may be used to overcomes limitations to support vision in dim light in a mouse model for retinitis pigmentosa (RP).  The study will be used to develop optogenetic therapy to overcome downstream retinal neurons where rod photoreceptors may have […]
