We investigated the pattern of expression and histopathological correlation of NCoR1 in 41 retinoblastoma tumor samples, 1 retinoblastoma cell line (WERI-Rb-1) and human retinal progenitor cells (hRPCs). METHODS Tissue(More)
PURPOSE SIRT1 is a deacetylase that has been shown to be instrumental in embryonic and pathologic vascular formation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential role of SIRT1 in the pathogenesis of choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration. METHODS The expression of SIRT1 was assessed via immunohistochemistry in nine(More)
