Prevalence, differences, and potential correlation to age, sex, breed, coat color, iris color, and geographic location in naturally occurring refractive errors in the normal equine eye from Germany and North Carolina

Veterinary Ophthalmology, 26(4), 297–305.

By: L. Charnock*, M. Davidson n, D. Keys*, B. Gilger n & R. McMullen*

author keywords: ametropia; astigmatism; emmetropia; equine ophthalmology; refraction; streak retinoscopy
TL;DR: Most eyes evaluated are emmetropic, or shifted myopically, with excellent agreement between eyes of the same horse, and sex, iris color, and geographic location appear to impact refraction in horses. (via Semantic Scholar)

Telomerase activity in lens epithelial cells of normal and cataractous lenses

EXPERIMENTAL EYE RESEARCH, 69(6), 641–649.

By: C. Colitz n, M. Davidson n & M. McGahan n

author keywords: telomerase; telomere; lens epithelial cells; cataract; DNA; cell senescence; beta-galactosidase
MeSH headings : Animals; Blotting, Southern; Cataract / enzymology; Cats; Cell Differentiation; Cell Division; Cells, Cultured; Cellular Senescence; Cytological Techniques; Dogs; Epithelial Cells / enzymology; Lens, Crystalline / cytology; Lens, Crystalline / enzymology; Lens, Crystalline / ultrastructure; Mice; Rabbits; Telomerase / analysis; Telomerase / metabolism; Telomere / ultrastructure; beta-Galactosidase / metabolism
TL;DR: Telomerase activity is likely important in the germinative epithelium to maintain its proliferative potential and prevent cell senescence and may function in the quiescent, central lens to maintain telomeres damaged by oxidative stress and ultraviolet light exposure, thereby preventing accelerated loss of these elements which triggers cellsenescence.
