CNTF Negatively Regulates the Phototransduction Machinery in Rod Photoreceptors: Implication for Light-Induced Photostasis Plasticity
CNTF is a member of the interleukin-6 (IL-6) family of neuropoietic cytokines, which includes IL-6, IL-11, LIF (leukemia inhibitory factor), OsM (oncostatin M), and CT-1 (cardiotropin 1).
