OBJECTIVE To identify molecular mechanisms of retinal responses to intraocular pressure elevation in primate experimental glaucoma. METHODS An experimental glaucoma model was created by repeated laser trabeculophotocoagulation. After the preparation of complementary DNAs from extracted total RNAs in the retinas, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) experiments were performed for the following screening target genes: beta-tubulin beta 2 and beta 5 and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP).
