Role of Axonal Transport in the Pathophysiology of Retinal and Optic Nerve Disease
The analysis of intra-axonal transport of retinal ganglion cells in various retinopathies and optic neuropathies has given a unique insight into the dynamics of the axonal transport and metabolism of the diseased retinal ganglion cells. In a number of recent studies axonal transport dysfunctions have been described in association with a variety of pathological conditions affecting the retinal ganglion cell and its axon.
