Systematic Evaluation of the Mouse Eye: Anatomy, Pathology, and Biomethods
English | ISBN: 084930864X | 2001 | PDF | 383 pages | 13 mb
The high degree of similarity between mouse and human genomes and physiology has made mice the laboratory animals of choice in the search for models of human disease. In recent years, significant advances in our ability to examine the mouse eye and to view vascular and neural structures in vivo has led to a marked increase in interest in mouse ocular pathology and development.
This book provides the first comprehensive and systematic approach to understanding the development, structure, and abnormal pathology of the mouse eye. It describes the normal anatomy, pre- and postnatal development, regional pathology, and methodology for evaluation of the mouse eye and adnexae.
