Light-induced retinal damage involves tyrosine 33 phosphorylation, mitochondrial and nuclear translocation of WW domain-containing oxidoreductase in vivo.


WW domain-containing oxidoreductase WOX1, also named WWOX or FOR, is a known proapoptotic protein and a candidate tumor suppressor. Stress stimuli activate WOX1 via tyrosine 33 (Tyr33) phosphorylation and translocation to the mitochondria and nuclei in vitro. Here, the potential role of WOX1 in light-induced retinal degeneration in vivo was investigated… (More)
