Effect of apolipoprotein A1-mimetic peptide on cultured retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells

Yoko Miura, I. Fritz, S. Grisanti & M. Rudolf
Background: Our previous studies suggested that apolipoprotein (Apo) A-I mimetic peptides, as D-4F and L-4F, reduce pathological lipid deposits in the bruch‘s membrane (BRM), and in the sub-RPE space. In this study we investigated the effect of D-4F on RPE cell proliferation and oxidative stress-induced[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
