Pathologic processes in glaucoma include increased apoptosis, accumulation of extracellular material in the trabecular meshwork and optic nerve, condensations of the cytoskeleton and precocious cellular senescence. Oxidative stress was shown to generate these alterations in primary ocular cells. Fatty acids omega-3 and -6 are alleged to constitute a prophylaxis against these deleterious effects. Here, we tested actual preventive effects omega-3 and -6 against peroxide induced stress responses… Expand
Effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on the cytoskeleton: an open-label intervention study
TLDR
Reduced cytoskeleton-associated gene expression after n-3 PUFA supplementation suggests that regulation of cytoskeletal dynamics might be an additional way by which n- 3 PUFAs exert their cellular effects. Expand
n-3 fatty acids modulate adipose tissue inflammation and oxidative stress
TLDR
An update on the effects of n-3 PUFAs on risk factors of metabolic syndrome, especially adipose tissue inflammation, oxidative stress and underlying mechanisms of these effects is presented. Expand
Cardioprotective effects of omega-3 fatty acids and ascorbic acid improve regenerative capacity of embryonic stem cell-derived cardiac lineage cells.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that EPA’s DHA and AA may be an appropriate preincubation regimen for regenerative purposes and that an injection of ESC-derived cardiac lineage cells into the ischemic myocardium of a rat model of MI significantly reduced fibrosis compared to the vehicle group. Expand
PUFA and oxidative stress. Differential modulation of the cell response by DHA
TLDR
The results underline that PUFA cannot be considered as a single category but as individual compounds, and research on mechanisms of action and preventive effects should deal with the individual fatty acids, particularly in the case of DHA. Expand
The Eye, Oxidative Damage and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids
TLDR
This review focuses on the role of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the human eye, particularly in such pathologies as dry eye, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, in which dietary PUFA supplementation can be a valid therapeutic aid. Expand
Activation of ATF4 triggers trabecular meshwork cell dysfunction and apoptosis in POAG
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the eIF2-α/ATF4/CHOP branch of unfolded protein response (UPR) was activated in human trabecular meshwork cells (HTMCs) upon tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) exposure, and ATF4 is a critical mediator of oxidative stress and ER stress-induced TM cell dysfunction and apoptosis in POAG.

The regulation of connective tissue growth factor expression influences the viability of human trabecular meshwork cells
TLDR
The beneficial effect of CTGF for viability of TM cells is likely associated with the effects on increased ECM synthesis and higher contractility of the TM, thereby contributing to reduced aqueous humour outflow facility causing increased intraocular pressure. Expand
Oxidative stress in the trabecular meshwork (Review).
TLDR
The regulation of the oxidative/redox balance may be the ultimate target for protecting the TM from oxidative stress and preventing glaucoma. Expand
Strategies to Reduce Oxidative Stress in Glaucoma Patients
TLDR
It is proven that antioxidants and ω-3/ω-6 fatty acids at the molecular level in the glaucomatous anterior and posterior eye segments may help regulating the intraocular pressure as well as protecting the retinal neurons against OS/NS in POAG. Expand
Oxidative stress and antioxidants in the trabecular meshwork
TLDR
The mechanisms of oxidative stress in the TM and treatment strategies for this condition, including strategies involving antioxidants, noncoding RNAs and exogenous compounds, are discussed and new targets for glaucoma prevention are suggested. Expand

In this work we advance the hypothesis that omega-3 (omega-3) long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) exhibit cytoprotective and cytotherapeutic actions contributing to a number ofExpand
Effects of oxidative stress in trabecular meshwork cells are reduced by prostaglandin analogues.
TLDR
Oxidative stress is able to induce characteristic glaucomatous TM changes in vitro, and these oxidative stress-induced TM changes can be minimized by the use of prostaglandin analogues. Expand
Sustained stress response after oxidative stress in trabecular meshwork cells
TLDR
Chronic oxidative stress in TM cells induced iROS production in mitochondria, which may contribute to the pathogenesis of the TM in glaucoma by inducing the expression of inflammatory mediators previously observed in glAUcoma donors as well as the levels of oxidative damage in the tissue. Expand

Under conditions simulating inflammation, supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids decreases PGE2 and PGF2α production in cultured decidual cells and suggests a mechanism by which omega- 3 fatty acid supplementation decreases the incidence of preterm birth in high-risk patients. Expand

It is concluded that under sublethal oxidative stress conditions, the TM cell adhesion to the ECM was impaired, and the short‐term loss of cell‐matrix adhesiveness may be related to the rearrangement of cytoskeletal structures. Expand
