PURPOSE OPA1, the gene responsible for autosomal dominant optic atrophy, represents a good candidate gene for normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Single nucleotide polymorphisms on intervening sequence (IVS) 8 of the OPA1 gene (IVS8+4C>T; +32T>C) were recently found to be strongly associated with NTG in a Caucasian population. We investigated whether these… CONTINUE READING
