• Mechanisms of Homocysteine-Induced Retinal Ganglion Cell Death

      Ganapathy, Preethi S.; Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy (2010-12)
      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.
