RESEARCH DESCRIPTION:

Research focus:

1.Biochemical mechanism of senile cataract formation, with emphasis in oxidation damage and repair of the lens proteins/enzymes.
2.Redox homeostasis in the lens, with emphasis in studying the physiological role of the key redox regulators of GSH-dependent thioltransferase,
    and the NADPH-dependent thioredoxin/thioredoxin reductase systems.
3.Redox signaling in the lens and cornea, with emphasis in the physiological role of reactive oxygen species in mediating growth factor induced cell proliferation and wound healing.
