The Functional Role of CTGF, TGF-beta, and BMP-7 for Aqueous Humor Dynamics and Pathogenesis of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma

Aqueous humor outflow in the trabecular meshwork (TM) is under the influence of TM extracellular matrix turnover and cell contractility. The project studies the molecular function of the growth factors CTGF, TGF-beta, and BMP-7 for TM cell function using cell culture systems, anterior segment organ culture perfusion, and by the generation of transgenic animal models.
