Dataset on the activation of Müller cells through macrophages upon hypoxia in the retina

Data Brief. 2017 Nov 22;16:489-500. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2017.11.062. eCollection 2018 Feb.


The dataset presented in this article complements the article entitled "Myeloid cells contribute indirectly to VEGF expression upon hypoxia via activation of Müller cells" (C. Nürnberg, N. Kociok, C. Brockmann, T. Lischke, S. Crespo-Garcia, N. Reichhart, S. Wolf, R. Baumgrass, S.A. Eming, S. Beer-Hammer, and A.M. Joussen). This complementary dataset provides further insight into the experimental validation of the VEGFfl/fl LysMCre (here named VEGFmcko) knockout model used in the main article through genomic and quantitative Real-Time PCR in various murine tissues as well as additional flow cytometry data and immunohistochemical stainings. By providing these data, we aim to enable researcher to reproduce and critically analyze our data.
