Abstract:Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and oxidative stress are involved in many diseases, including retinal disorders, causing toxicity in various tissues and cells; however, intracellular signaling of ER stress and cross-talk between ER stress and oxidative stress are unknown in retinal ganglion cells (RGC), whose degeneration is associated with glaucoma. The aim of the study was to clarify the mechanisms of ER stress- and oxidative stress-induced RGC death, using cultured retinal ganglion cells (RGC-5) in vitro …
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.
