Retinitis pigmentosa and the new genetics

Armstrong, Richard A. and Smith, Stephen A. (1999). Retinitis pigmentosa and the new genetics. Optometry Today, 1999 (Decemb), pp. 26-32.


This article describes the recent advances that have been made in understanding the molecular genetics of retinitis pigmentosa (RP). The basic clinical and pathological aspects of RP will be described, together with the patterns of inheritance exhibited by the disorder. In addition, the most important genes that have been linked to RP will be discussed as well as the advances in molecular genetics which have led to the identification of mutations in these genes.
