PURPOSE Hypoxia-induced retinal ganglion cell (RGC) apoptosis has been implicated in many optic neuropathies. Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is important in maintaining neuronal survival, proliferation, and differentiation. The purpose of this study is to explore whether IGF-1 can protect RGCs from hypoxia-induced apoptosis and to determine the(More)
Hyperthyroidism is prevalent during pregnancy, but little is known about the effects of excess thyroid hormone on the development of embryonic neural stem/progenitor cells (NSCs), and the mechanisms underlying these effects. Previous studies indicate that STAT3 plays a crucial role in determining NSC fate during neurodevelopment. In this study, we(More)
