Piccolo is essential for the maintenance of mouse retina but not cochlear hair cell function

Retinal anatomy in wild type and Piccolo-/- mice. (A) H&E stained sections of retinas from Piccolo-/- and wild type mice at one, two, four, six and eight months of age, respectively. (B) The thickness of retina in Piccolo-/- and wild type (WT) mice (n = 6 per group) at 1, 4 and 8 months; ***P
