The cellular basis of aqueous outflow regulation

Curr Opin Ophthalmol. 1997 Apr;8(2):19-27. doi: 10.1097/00055735-199704000-00005.


This review begins with an introduction to the concept of the cellular regulation of aqueous outflow, current methods used for its study, and the cell types that are known to participate in this process. Current research in the field is divided into work on cell properties, cell products and extracellular matrix, cytoskeletal and structural changes, and drug interactions.
