How can we improve the quality of cataract services for all? A global scoping review.
https://doi.org/10.1111/ceo.13976
Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology; Yoshizaki M, Ramke J et. al.

Jul 23rd, 2021 - Cataract is a leading cause of blindness and vision impairment globally. Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed operations worldwide, but good quality services are not universally available. This scoping review aims to summarise ...

Functional analysis of deleterious EPHA2 SNPs in lens epithelial cells.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8254660
Molecular Vision; Li D, Han X et. al.

Jul 17th, 2021 - Ephrin (Eph) receptor A2 (EPHA2) polymorphism has been associated with age-related cataract (ARC) in different populations worldwide, but the mechanisms by which this polymorphism results in the development of ARC are unclear. Here, we chose four ...

Racemization in cataractous lens from diabetic and aging individuals: analysis of Asp 5...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8221327
Aging Zhu XJ, Zhang KK et. al.

Jun 8th, 2021 - Cataract is the leading cause of visual impairment globally. Racemization of lens proteins may contribute to cataract formation in aging individuals. As a special type of age-related cataract (ARC), diabetic cataract (DC) is characterized by the e...

Novel EDGE encoding method enhances ability to identify genetic interactions.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8208534
PLoS Genetics; Hall MA, Wallace J et. al.

Jun 5th, 2021 - Assumptions are made about the genetic model of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) when choosing a traditional genetic encoding: additive, dominant, and recessive. Furthermore, SNPs across the genome are unlikely to demonstrate identical genet...

MicroRNA-124 regulates lens epithelial cell apoptosis by affecting Fas alternative spli...
https://doi.org/10.1111/ceo.13946
Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology; Zhang K, Yin Y et. al.

May 20th, 2021 - Age-related cataract (ARC) is a primary cause of visual blindness worldwide. Lens epithelial cell (LEC) apoptosis, in which Fas plays an essential role, is a vital cytological basis for cataractogenesis. However, the regulatory mechanism of Fas-de...
