Light induces peroxidation in retina by activating prostaglandin G/H synthase.

Prostaglandin G/H synthase (PGHS) has been shown to generate peroxides to a significant extent in the retina and absorbs light at the lower end of the visible spectrum. We postulated that PGHS could be an important initial source of peroxidation in the retina exposed to light, which would in turn alter retinal function. Exposure of pig eyes (in vivo) to… CONTINUE READING
