Neurochem Int. 2019 Feb 27. pii: S0197-0186(18)30627-2. doi: 10.1016/j.neuint.2019.02.018. [Epub ahead of print] Abstract Neurones are dependent on their mitochondria to produce the necessary amounts of ATP for survival. Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) have a particularly large number of mitochondria which-unlike neurones in the brain-are exposed to visual light of 400-850 nm. Here we demonstrate that short...
