Neuroligin-3 protects retinal cells from H2O2-induced cell death via activation of Nrf2 signaling.

Intensified oxidative stress can cause severe damage to human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells and retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). The potential effect of neuroligin-3 (NLGN3) against the process is studied here. Our results show that NLGN3 efficiently inhibited hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced death and apoptosis in human RPE cells and RGCs. H2O2… CONTINUE READING
