Sammanfattning : Inherited retinal and corneal dystrophies represent a group of disorders with great genetic heterogeneity. Over 250 genes are associated with retinal diseases and 16 genes are causative of corneal dystrophies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Acute exposure of the mammalian eye to UVR results in development of photokeratitis after a period of a few hours. Chronic exposure to UVR is associated with an increased risk of several corneal disorders, including pterygium, climatic droplet keratopathy, and climatic proteoglycan stromal keratopathy. LÄS MER
3. Arachidonic acid metabolism in corneal epithelial cells : Identification of lipoxygenase isoforms
Sammanfattning : The metabolism of arachidonic acid in the human cornea was investigated and compared with the metabolism in cattle and primates. All three species showed significant arachidonic acid metabolism inthe epithelium, whereas the activity in the stroma and the endothelium was low or undetectable. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : It is a necessity of life to make proteins, and it is an equal necessity to degrade those proteins, to eliminate dysfunctional proteins, and leave room for new ones. The processes of protein synthesis and degradation into peptides - proteolysis - have attracted a great interest during the last decades. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Recurrent corneal erosions are a common complication of superficial corneal wounds. They most commonly arise following a trauma, in association with various corneal dystrophies, or are idiopathic. LÄS MER
