Title:
Mechanisms of Homocysteine-Induced Retinal Ganglion Cell Death
Authors:
Ganapathy, Preethi S.
Abstract:
The purpose of these studies was to determine the effect of excess homocysteine on retinal ganglion cell viability. An overview of homocysteine metabolism and the literature concerning homocysteine-induced neurotoxicity is given below, followed by detailed descriptions of the eye, the retina, and retinal ganglion cells.
