Cellular iron plays a significant role in the natural cell death process […]

Aging in the eyes may be accelerated by a lack of youth protective protein

A recent mouse study from the National Eye Institute suggests that the depletion of the protein pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), which safeguards retinal support cells, may be the cause of age-related alterations in the retina (NEI). The light-sensitive tissue called the retina is located in the back of the eye, and age-related retinal illnesses such […]
