GTx-822, an ER{beta}-selective agonist, protects retinal pigment epithelium (ARPE-19) from oxidative stress by activating MAPK and PI3-K pathways.


PURPOSE The goal of this study was to determine whether an estrogen receptor-β (ERβ)-selective agonist (GTx-822; GTx, Inc., Memphis, TN) could prevent hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2))-induced oxidative stress in ARPE-19 cells and to elucidate the molecular pathways involved in this protection. METHODS The selectivity of GTx-822 for ERβ was determined by… (More)
