Title:
Regulation of Reduced-Folate Transporter-1 in Retinal Pigment Epithelium
Authors:
Naggar, Hany A.
Abstract:
(First Paragraph) The purpose of these studies was to analyze the regulation of the folate transport protein, reduced-folate transporter (RFT-1) in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) under conditions o f hyperglycemia, hyperhomocysteinemia and folate deficiency. A detailed description o f the retina, followed by information regarding folate and regulation o f RFT-1, is provided below.
