Abstract

BACKGROUND Apoptosis is a gene-regulated mode of cell death which gains increasing importance in retinal pathologies such as retinitis pigmentosa, retinal detachment and proliferative vitreoretinopathy. A better understanding of the regulation of apoptosis could imply the means to reduce photoreceptor cell death and thereby provide therapeutic strategies to… (More)
