Online Cover This week features a Research Article showing that SOCS3 in neurons and glial cells limits retinal neovascularization, a process that can cause blindness. The image shows a cross section of a retina from a mouse with a neuronal- and glial cell–specific deficiency in the gene encoding SOCS3. The presence of green fluorescent protein indicates the region of the retina that was deficient in SOCS3.
