Description
Autophagy is cellular process in which proteins, organelles, and even pathogens are engulfed by phagosomes and degraded. Experimental models of glaucoma, studies of inherited normal tension glaucoma, and studies of transgenic mice all suggest that autophagy may have an important role in glaucoma pathogenesis. This special interest group will explore and discuss the involvement of autophagy in glaucoma pathophysiology in human patient populations, animal models of glaucoma, and cell culture.
