Sample Icon 6 Downloadable Samples
Technology Badge Icon Affymetrix Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array (hgu133plus2)

Submitter Supplied Information

Myocilin, a causative gene for open-angle glaucoma, encodes a secreted glycoprotein of unknown function. To elucidate its function(s), we produced a stably transfected HEK293 cell line expressing myocilin and compared the expression profiles between the myocilin-expressing cell line and a vector control cell line using Affymetrix GeneChip U133 plus 2.0 array. A significant portion of differentially-expressed genes in the myocilin-expressing cells was associated with cell growth and cell death, suggesting that myocilin may have an important role regulating cell growth/survival..
