BACKGROUND This study explores the role of actin cytoskeleton depolymerization induced by Cytochalasin D and mechanical stretch on the interleukin-8 (IL-8) expression and c-jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) phosphorylation levels in human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells. METHODS A Flexcell FX-5000 Tension system was used to apply cyclic stretch to… CONTINUE READING
