Title:  Insights from a Novel Model of Dry AMD
 
Description:  Here, we show that Wnt and Nrf2, two fundamental signaling systems that are vital to cell survival, decline in a novel model of geographic atrophy, in a bidirectional feedback loop through phosphorylated GSK3ß. Decreased Wnt and Nrf2 signaling leads to RPE dysfunction and apoptosis, and a phenotype that is strikingly similar to geographic atrophy, an advanced form of AMD with no effective treatment. We also show STGD have increased BrM-EZ and BrM-RPE thickness and thining of EZ in areas that are devoid o atrophy and flecks. The BrM-EZ segment of the outer-retina of STGD lacked the typical normal tri-laminar pattern. These findings suggest that pathologic changes in STGD are more widespread than that seen by clinical examination.
