All-trans retinoic acid stimulates the secretion of TGF-β2 via the phospholipase C but not the adenylyl cyclase signaling pathway in retinal pigment epithelium cells.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 18;19(1):23. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, The Third Xiangya Hospital, Central South, Changsha, Hunan, China.

Background: By investigating that (i) all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) affects human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in expressing and secreting transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and (ii) U73122 (phospholipase C inhibitor) and SQ22536 (adenylyl cyclase inhibitor) regulate the ATRA-induced secretion of TGF-β in human RPE, we sought to interpret the signaling pathway of ATRA in promoting the development of myopia.

Methods: The RPE cell line (D407) was treated with (i) ATRA (10 μM), (ii) U73122 (5-40 μM) and ATRA (10 μM), or (iii) SQ22536 (5-40 μM) and ATRA (10 μM). The control group was no-treated. Read More

Background/aims: The ability to extract depth from disparity may be hindered under fusional stress, as alignment of the eyes may be more difficult to maintain consistently. Therefore we aim to determine the effect of fusional demand on stereoacuity in individuals with no known binocular vision impairments.

Methods: A novel static and dynamic binocular depth detection task, capable of assessing many discrete levels of stereoacuity, was presented on digital displays attached to each tube of the Synoptophore. Read More
