Detailed Clinical Phenotype and Molecular Genetic Findings in CLN3-Associated Isolated Retinal Degeneration.
 

Author(s): Cristy A Ku, Sarah Hull, Gavin Arno, Ajoy Vincent, Keren Carss, Robert Kayton, Douglas Weeks, Glenn W Anderson, Ryan Geraets, Camille Parker, David A Pearce, Michel Michaelides, Robert E MacLaren, Anthony G Robson, Graham E Holder, Elise Heon, F Lucy Raymond, Anthony T Moore, Andrew R Webster, Mark E Pennesi

Journal: JAMA Ophthalmol. 2017 Jul;135(7):749-760.

 

Mutations in genes traditionally associated with syndromic retinal disease are increasingly found to cause nonsyndromic inherited retinal degenerations. Mutations in CLN3 are classically associated with juvenile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, a rare neurodegenerative disease with ...

IFT81 as a Candidate Gene for Nonsyndromic Retinal Degeneration.
 

Author(s): Rachayata Dharmat, Wei Liu, Zhongqi Ge, Zixi Sun, Lizhu Yang, Yumei Li, Keqing Wang, Kandace Thomas, Ruifang Sui, Rui Chen

Journal: Invest. Ophthalmol. Vis. Sci.. 2017 May;58(5):2483-2490.

 

IFT81, a core component of the IFT-B complex, involved in the bidirectional transport of ciliary proteins, has been recently implicated in syndromic ciliopathies. However, none of the IFT-B core complex proteins have been associated with nonsyndromic retinal dystrophies. Given the ...

Fully Automated Robust System to Detect Retinal Edema, Central Serous Chorioretinopathy, and Age Related Macular Degeneration from Optical Coherence Tomography Images.
 

Author(s): Samina Khalid, M Usman Akram, Taimur Hassan, Ammara Nasim, Amina Jameel

Journal: Biomed Res Int. 2017 ;2017():7148245.

 

Maculopathy is the excessive damage to macula that leads to blindness. It mostly occurs due to retinal edema (RE), central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR), or age related macular degeneration (ARMD). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is the latest eye testing technique that ...

Neuroprotective Strategy in Retinal Degeneration: Suppressing ER Stress-Induced Cell Death via Inhibition of the mTOR Signal.
 

Author(s): Bin Fan, Ying-Jian Sun, Shu-Yan Liu, Lin Che, Guang-Yu Li

Journal:

 

The retina is a specialized sensory organ, which is essential for light detection and visual formation in the human eye. Inherited retinal degenerations are a heterogeneous group of eye diseases that can eventually cause permanent vision loss. UPR (unfolded protein response) and ER ...

Therapeutic Approaches to Histone Reprogramming in Retinal Degeneration.
 

Author(s): Andre K Berner, Mark E Kleinman

Journal: Adv. Exp. Med. Biol.. 2016 ;854():39-44.

 

Recent data have revealed epigenetic derangements and subsequent chromatin remodeling as a potent biologic switch for chronic inflammation and cell survival which are important therapeutic targets in the pathogenesis of several retinal degenerations. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are ...
