ALDH2 protects naturally aged mouse retina via inhibiting oxidative stress-related apoptosis and enhancing unfolded protein response in endoplasmic reticulum

The retinal structures of ALDH2 overexpression aged mice. (A) A typical marked OCT image; (B) The thickness of the ONL; (C) The thickness of the INL; (D) A typical marked HE staining image; (E) The number of ONL cell layers; (F) The number of INL cell layers; (G) The fundus performance in the mice. All analyses were performed in duplicate. Scale bar: 50 μm. Black arrow showed retinal depigmentation change. Yellow box showed retinal structure analysis area. Values are presented as the mean ± SD, n = 6 mice per group. *Pvs young (WT); #Pvs aged (WT).

All analyses were performed in duplicate. Scale bar: 50 μm. Black arrow showed retinal depigmentation change. Yellow box showed retinal structure analysis area. Values are presented as the mean ± SD, n = 6 mice per group. *P<0.05: aged (WT) and aged (ALDH2+) vs young (WT); #P<0.05: aged (ALDH2+) vs aged (WT).
