Expression of CRYP-alpha, LAR, PTP-delta, and PTP-rho in the developing Xenopus visual system.

Johnson KG , Holt CE .

Receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases (RPTPs), are involved in axon outgrowth and guidance not only in the Drosophila visual system (Garrity et al., 1999. Neuron 22, 707-717) but also in the developing vertebrate retina (Ledig et al., 1999a. J. Cell Biol. 147, 375-388). We have cloned a variety of Xenopus RPTPs, including four RPTPs expressed in the developing visual system (LAR, PTP-delta, CRYP-alpha and PTP-rho). These four RPTPs are transcribed in the developing optic vesicle during differentiation and in overlapping but distinct patterns in the developing retina during retinal layer formation. LAR, PTP-delta, and CRYP-alpha are also expressed in retinal ganglion cells during axonogenesis and during axon guidance from the retina to the optic tectum.
