ARHGAP29 Regulates Keratinocyte Migration through the RhoA/ROCK Pathway

13 views | May 15 2022

Lindsey Rhea et al. demonstrated that ARHGAP29 regulated keratinocyte morphology and promoted migration speed and directionality through the RhoA/ROCK pathway, providing potential insight into its importance in craniofacial development. [Read the Full Post]

Response to netarsudil in goniotomy-treated eyes and goniotomy-naïve eyes: a pilot study

179 views | Mar 29 2022

Haochen Xu et al.showed that netarsudil had a greater IOP-lowering effect in eyes treated with prior goniotomy and might serve as a promising adjunctive ocular hypotensive agent to further reduce IOP in eyes with prior goniotomy. [Read the Full Post]

Chemical Reprogramming of Somatic Cells in Neural Direction: Myth or Reality?
