This chapter reviews the application of traditional markers for studying mouse retina. It demonstrates that XFP and transgenic technologies have been combined to mark several groups of retinal neurons, many of which comprise subtypes as defined by structure, function, gene expression, or mosaic arrangement. It then briefly discusses three studies that illustrate the power of these methods to aid in identification, manipulation, and developmental analysis of retinal subtypes. This chapter suggests that using well-defined model systems such as the retina, and focusing on well-defined neuronal subtypes, will be critical in speeding progress.

Keywords:   mouse retina, XFP, retinal neurons, gene expression, retinal subtypes, neuronal subtypes, mosaic arrangement
