Orexins and their receptors in the human retina


Savaskan, E; Müller-Spahn, F; Meier, F; Wirz-Justice, A; Meyer, P (2004). Orexins and their receptors in the human retina. Pathobiology, 71(4):211-216.

Abstract

This immunohistochemical study provides the first evidence for the distribution of orexin A, orexin B and OX-R1 in the human retina. The localization pattern suggests a modulatory role for orexins in the interactions of those retinal cells which transmit light information to the suprachiasmatic nuclei, and thus may be involved in circadian rhythm entrainment.
