ReachMDNew UCI-led Study Shows Repeated Stress Accelerates Aging of the Eye

The Aging Cell article, penned by Dorota Skowronska-Krawczyk, PhD, an assistant professor in the departments of physiology & biophysics and ophthalmology and a member of the faculty at the Center for Translational Vision Research at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, describes the transcriptional and epigenetic changes occurring in aging retina with the help of her coworkers. The research team demonstrates how stress, such as increased intraocular pressure (IOP) in the eye, promotes epigenetic and transcriptional alterations in retinal tissue that are similar to those associated with aging. And how repeated stress in early retinal tissue causes signs of accelerated aging, such as an accelerated epigenetic age.
