By E. Lütjen-Drecoll

The phenomenon of getting older is characterised through a number of degenerative adjustments, which differentially impact the hugely really good constructions in the eye, comparable to the merely mobile lens, the brain-derived retina and the connective tissue of the uvea and sclera. accordingly, the attention can function a great version process to check age-related degenerative illnesses. an summary article offers with the molecular biology of alpha-B-crystallin, and unique articles provide additional perception into the distribution and attainable useful importance of nonlenticular alpha-B-crystallin. Retinal transplantation experiences which could eventually result in treatment for tapetoretinal degeneration and age-related macular degeneration are mentioned. additional, components that impact the advance of the retinal tissues are investigated. And one other evaluation examines cells of the deep lens fibers. This distinctive factor is an in-depth resource of knowledge to ophthalmologists in study and perform.

Possibly, it is due to the opening of nonselective cation channels [32, 132]. The entire voltage response of trabecular meshwork cells to acetylcholine could be blocked by the application of atropine [120]. Ophthalmologica 2000;214:33–53 43 Fig. 12. Acetylcholine reversibly depolar- ized human and bovine trabecular meshwork cells. Note the transient hyperpolarization prior to the prolonged depolarization. endothelin A receptors in both tissues. The response to endothelin seems to follow a mechanism similar to that of other receptor-mediated signalling cascades.

Again, this does not rule out measurable participation of these channels when the cells are in an activated state. Large-Conductance Calcium-Activated Potassium Channels Large-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels, also known as maxi-K channels, feature three properties: large conductance of over 200 pS, activation by elevation of cytosolic calcium (fig. 16A, B) and activation by an increase in resting voltage [136]. Charybdotoxin and, especially, iberiotoxin, both won from scorpion venom, are highly specific blockers of this channel [137] (fig.
