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

The expression of retinal TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-1 in aged ALDH2 overexpression and aged Alda1-treated mice. (A) The expression of retinal TNF-α in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (B) The expression of retinal IL-6 in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (C) The expression of retinal IL-1 in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (D) The expression of retinal TNF-α in aged Alda1-treated mice; (E) The expression of retinal IL-6 in aged Alda1-treated mice; (F) The expression of retinal IL-1 in aged Alda1-treated mice. All analyses were performed in duplicate. Values are presented as the mean ± SD, n = 4 mice per group. *Pvs young (WT) or Aged (DMSO) and aged (Alda1) vs young; #Pvs aged (WT) or aged (Alda1) vs aged (DMSO).

(A) The expression of retinal TNF-α in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (B) The expression of retinal IL-6 in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (C) The expression of retinal IL-1 in aged ALDH2 overexpression mice; (D) The expression of retinal TNF-α in aged Alda1-treated mice; (E) The expression of retinal IL-6 in aged Alda1-treated mice; (F) The expression of retinal IL-1 in aged Alda1-treated mice. All analyses were performed in duplicate. Values are presented as the mean ± SD, n = 4 mice per group. *P<0.05: aged (WT) and aged (ALDH2+) vs young (WT) or Aged (DMSO) and aged (Alda1) vs young; #P<0.05: aged (ALDH2+) vs aged (WT) or aged (Alda1) vs aged (DMSO).
