Background Previous studies have reported the association of HK2 and NCK2 genes with normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) in Japan, but there has been no follow-up study in other countries, so the relevance of these genes to NTG appears uncertain at present. Thus, we investigated the relationship between the HK2 and NCK2 genes and NTG in a Korean NTG cohort.

Summary Background Projections of future mortality and life expectancy are needed to plan for health and social services and pensions. Our aim was to forecast national age-specific mortality and life expectancy using an approach that takes into account the uncertainty related to the choice of forecasting model. Methods We developed an ensemble of 21 forecasting models, all of which probabilistically contributed towards the final projections. We applied this approach to project age-specific morta...

Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is a complex progressive optic nerve neuropathy triggered by both environmental and genetic risk factors. Several ocular tissues, including the ciliary body, trabecular meshwork and optic nerve head, and perhaps even brain tissues, are involved in a chain of pathological events leading to POAG. Genetic risk evidence for POAG came from family linkage-studies implicating a small number of disease genes (MYOC, OPEN, WDR36). Recent Genome Wide Association Studies (...

Although family studies and genome-wide association studies have shown that genetic factors play a role in glaucoma, it has been difficult to identify the specific genetic variants involved. We tested 669 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from the region of chromosome 2 that includes the GLC1B glaucoma locus for association with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and normal tension glaucoma (NTG) in the Japanese population. We performed a two-stage case-control study. The first cohort consi...

Abstract Slits are multifunctional guidance cues, capable of triggering neurite repulsion, extension, or branching, depending on cell type and developmental context. While the Robo family of Slit receptors is a well-established mediator of axon repulsion, a role for Robos in Slit-mediated neurite growth and branching is not well defined, and the signaling molecules that link Robo to the cytoskeletal changes that drive neurite outgrowth are not well characterized in vertebrates. We show that Slit...

Purpose To assess the prevalence of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) in the Namil-myon area in central South Korea. Design A cross-sectional, epidemiologic study in a defined population. Participants Residents aged 鈮40 years in Namil-myon, a rural agricultural area in central South Korea. Methods Each subject underwent a screening that consisted of an interview and ophthalmic examinations, including visual acuity measurement, autorefraction, anterior segment evaluation by optical biometry, sli...

Purpose To assess the prevalence of glaucoma in adult Chinese. Design Population-based study. Methods The Beijing Eye Study in 2001 included 4439 subjects with an age of 40+ years. Glaucoma was determined using the ISGEO (International Society of Geographical and Epidemiological Ophthalmology) classification scheme. Results Glaucoma was detected in 158 subjects (3.7%, 95% confidence interval [CI] 3.1%鈥4.2%), in which open-angle glaucoma (OAG), primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), and secondary...

In humans, hexokinase (HK, EC types I, II, III, and IV are four distinct enzymes with different properties and tissue distribution, and are responsible for glucose phosphorylation (1, 2). Besides having a high affinity for glucose, HKs I-III have a molecular mass of 100 kDa and are regulated by feed-back-inhibition in response to the physiologic concentration of glucose 6-phosphate (G6P). In contrast, hexokinase IV (HK IV or glucokinase) is a 50 kDa protein with a lower affinity for glu...

Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between normal tension glaucoma and the candidate disease locus glaucoma 1, open angle, B (GLC1B) on chromosome 2. There are many reports describing the results of association or linkage studies for primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), with GLC1B as one of the loci associated with normal or moderately elevated intraocular pressure. However, there are few reports about the association of genes or defined genomic regions with normal ten...

Whole-genome association studies (WGAS) bring new computational, as well as analytic, challenges to researchers. Many existing genetic-analysis tools are not designed to handle such large data sets in a convenient manner and do not necessarily exploit the new opportunities that whole-genome data bring. To address these issues, we developed PLINK, an open-source C/C++ WGAS tool set. With PLINK, large data sets comprising hundreds of thousands of markers genotyped for thousands of individuals can ...

Glaucoma, the world鈥檚 leading cause of irreversible blindness, is a complex disease, with differential presentation as well as ethnic and geographic disparities. The multifactorial nature of glaucoma complicates the study of genetics and genetic involvement in the disease process. This review synthesizes the current literature on glaucoma and genetics, as stratified by glaucoma subtype and ethnicity. Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is the most common cause of glaucoma worldwide, with the only...
