Previous studies have reported that activation of nicotinic acetylcholine (ACh) receptors (nAChRs) on cultured pig retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) has a neuroprotective effect against glutamate-induced excitotoxicity. However, the mechanism linking nAChRs to neuroprotection is unknown. Here, we tested the hypothesis that signaling cascades involving p38(More)
To elucidate the morphological and cellular changes due to introduction of a charge during development and the possible mechanism that underlies cataract development in humans as a consequence of an additional charge, we generated a transgenic mouse model mimicking deamidation of Asn at position 101. The mouse model expresses a human αA-crystallin gene in(More)
