The phenomenon of getting older is characterised via a variety of degenerative alterations, which differentially have an effect on the hugely really expert buildings in the eye, comparable to the merely mobile lens, the brain-derived retina and the connective tissue of the uvea and sclera. accordingly, the attention can function a good version method to review age-related degenerative illnesses. an outline article bargains with the molecular biology of alpha-B-crystallin, and unique articles supply additional perception into the distribution and attainable practical value of nonlenticular alpha-B-crystallin. Retinal transplantation reports which could finally bring about treatment for tapetoretinal degeneration and age-related macular degeneration are mentioned. additional, components that effect the advance of the retinal tissues are investigated.

Example text

It seems that endothelin, the release of which has been shown to be stimulated by stretch and fluid flow rate [58], might be an important hormone regulating aqueous humor production and/or outflow. The finding of higher endothelin levels in glaucoma patients indicates a possible dysfunction involving an altered production of endothelin [57]. This theory is underscored by the fact that endothelin evokes a strong contractile response in isolated trabecular meshwork strips which is in the range of the carbachol effect if equal concentrations are applied (fig.

Prostaglandins had varying effects on trabecular meshwork, ranging from relaxation to contraction. This recording shows the strong, contractile response observable after application of the thromboxane mimetic U-46619. diuretics bumetanide and furosemide, and to the rather unspecific agent ethacrynic acid, which is known to inhibit not only this transporter, but also sodium-dependent anion transporters and to modulate the cytoskeleton. However, contractility of trabecular meshwork was not altered when this transporter was blocked by bumetanide [32, 74].

In addition, endothelin has been shown to increase pHi in trabecular meshwork cells [102]. Considering that endothelin contracts trabecular meshwork cells, it is possible that pHi is involved in the signalling cascade leading to contraction of trabecular meshwork, in parallel to observations on other smooth muscle cells [117, 118]. Electrophysiology of Trabecular Meshwork The electrophysiology of trabecular meshwork has been investigated using both traditional measurement of membrane voltage and the patch-clamp technique in the Ophthalmologica 2000;214:33–53 41 Fig.
