Modulation of kynurenic acid synthesis in rodent models of retinal degeneration

Objective

Gynogenic acid (KYNA) may act as a neuroprotectant against retinal degeneration. I will investigate modulation of its retinal content and the expression and cellular distribution of key enzymes of KYNA synthesis kynurenine ammotransferases I and II (KAT I and II) in rodent models of optic nerve trauma, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy
