Unaltered myocilin expression in the blood of primary open angle glaucoma patients Full Text
Molecular Vision, 04/25/2012
Abu–Amero KK et al. – Myocilin gene (MYOC) expression is not altered in the blood of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) patients, unlike MYOC expression in trabecular meshwork (TM) cultures. These results suggests that MYOC expression is not altered systemically but rather that MYOC expression may contribute to POAG pathogenesis in specific tissues such as TM.
