In case of ischemic injury to the retina, changes occur in the protein scaffold in the environment of retinal cells, the so-called extracellular matrix.

Various eye diseases, such as glaucoma, are associated with such ischemic events. Researchers at Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum describe how the extracellular matrix is affected by these processes in the journal Scientific Reports.
