Access from EThOS:
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a group of hereditary eye diseases which involve degeneration to the retina of the eye. GARP2 (glutamic acid-rich protein) is one of the retinal proteins expressed solely in the rod photoreceptor. This thesis focuses on both the genetic and proteomic profile of GARP2 and its possible role in the aetiology of RP.
