Increased ER stress as a mechanism of retinal neurovasculopathy in mice with severe hyperhomocysteinemia.


Hyperhomocysteinemia is implicated in retinal neurovascular diseases including arterial occlusive disease, venous occlusive disease and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. The mechanism for these diseases is not known. Here we used hyperhomocysteinemic mice lacking the gene encoding cystathionine-beta-synthase (cbs-/-) to examine whether ER stress could be a… (More)
