Aberrant TGF-β1 signaling activation by MAF underlies pathological lens growth in high myopia
AbstractHigh myopia is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Myopia progression may lead to pathological changes of lens and affect the outcome of lens surgery, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here, we find an increased lens size in highly myopic eyes associated with up-regulation of β/γ-crystallin expressions. Similar findings are replicated in two independent mouse models of high myopia. Mechanistic studies show that the transcription factor MAF plays an essential role indoi:10.1038/s41467-021-22041-2 pmid:33833231 pmcid:PMC8032689 fatcat:46f6nbkoqjemtiurfr7zt3cizm
