Eye :: University of Alberta researchers find new cause of blindness
In a paper published in the September 5 issue of the online, open-access journal PLoS ONE, Drs. Joe Casey and Yves Sauv? found evidence for blindness associated with a gene involved in retinal pH regulation. Their characterization of a mouse model with a targeted disruption of the Slc4a3 gene has revealed a new cause of blindness.
