To assess the influence of optineurin in the more common high-tension, primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Eighteen sporadic cases and 35 probands from 35 familial cases, including three families with one member having normal-tension glaucoma (NTG), were enrolled. Using transgenomic WAVE denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC), all coding portion of the optineurin gene (from exon 4 to exon 16) was analyzed. Samples displaying an altered elution profile were sequenced to… CONTINUE READING
