Isopropyl unoprostone increases the activities of matrix metalloproteinases in cultured monkey ciliary muscle cells.

PURPOSE The mechanism by which the prostaglandin F2alpha-related antiglaucoma compound isopropyl unoprostone (referred to as unoprostone) reduces intraocular pressure is largely unknown. Another prostaglandin F2alpha-related compound, latanoprost, influences the activities of matrix metalloproteinases in ciliary muscle. Unoprostone ophthalmic solution is… (More)
