Abstract:As the response of the adult retina to hypoxia is likely to differ from that already established in the neonatal animal, this study was undertaken to examine the expression patterns of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and -II (IGF-II), angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), and pigment epithelium-derived growth factor (PEDF) in normal and hypoxic retinas of adult rats. In the latter, the retinas were examined from 3 hr to 14 days after hypoxic exposure. The mRNA and protein expression of IGF-I, IGF-II, Ang-2, and PEDF in…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
