Fig A:  Neuropsin expression in ganglion cells of the mouse retina:  In these images, the expression of the Neuropsin gene (Opn5) is indicated by the blue labeling. Panel A is a control retina that does not contain the Opn5lacz reporter gene and so no blue labeling is apparent. Panels B and C show retina, labeled for Opn5lacz expression and showing the retinal ganglion cells that express Neuropsin. Panel D shows, in a section through the labeled retina, that Neuropsin expressing cells reside in the innermost layer of the retina.
