英文摘要:

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate-Diaphorase (NADPH-d) expressing neurons in the retina of golden hamsters have been identified to be a subset of amacrine cells that provide a major source of Nitric Oxide (NO) in retina. This subset of amacrine cells in mouse retina was recently proved to contain the circadian clock gene Per] (D.Q. Zhang, T. Zhou, G.X. Ruan, D.G. McMahon, Circadian rhythm of Period I clock gene expression in NOS amacrine cells of the mouse retina, Brain Res., 1050 (2005) 101-109). However, it remains unknown whether these clock-related NADPH-d amacrine cells can be regulated by light stimulation and thus synchronized to ambient day/night cycle. A previous study has reported that NADPH-d expressing amacrine cells in postnatal hamsters exhibited a surge after eye-opening (D. Tay, Y.C. Diao, Y.M. Xiao, K.F. So, Postnatal development of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase-positive neurons in the retina of the golden hamster, J. Comp. Neurol., 446 (2002) 342-348) suggesting a possible effect of light on the NADPH-d amacrine cells. In order to further reveal the relationship between NADPH-d amacrine cells and light stimulation, the present study focuses on the changes of the expression of NADPH-d in the retina of postnatal hamsters reared in completely deprived light conditions. Prior to eye opening, P12 hamster pups were subjected to either bilateral eyelid suturing or dark rearing. On P28 a subgroup of light deprived hamsters was returned to lighting conditions and the expression of NADPH-d activities in the retina was assessed. In hamsters reared in the 12:12 light-dark cycle, the number of NADPH-d amacrine cells in the ganglion cell layer (GCL) increased right after eye-opening and reached the adult level gradually. However, hamsters subjected to both bilateral eyelid suturing and dark rearing, the number of NADPH-d amacrine cells in GCL was maintained at a low level but increased again upon returning to the 12:12 light-dark condition. In contrast, the number of NADPH-d expressing amacrine cells in the inner nuclear layer (INL) remained low and unaltered regardless of the lighting environment. This study demonstrates that there are two subpopulations of NADPH-d expressing amacrine cells with respect to different locations in the retina of hamsters. Different from those in INL, the NADPH-d amacrine cells in GCL of postnatal hamsters are dependent on the lighting environment implicating that these clock-related amacrine cells and the production of NO might be under a modulation of light stimulation.
