Investigating Inflammasomes Implicated in Diabetic Retinopathy

Loss of retinal capillary density and vessel leakage in Akimba mice. Isolectin-GS IB4 staining on retinal flat mount showed normal vascular bed and uniform capillary distribution in WT (A–C) mouse, which was reduced markedly in Kimba - D–F, Akita - G–I - and significantly higher in Akimba - J–L - mice. Disruption of the capillary network was noted especially around the optic disk of Akimba – K - retina. Credit: Shyam Chaurasia, UM News Bureau
