Multidrug resistance-associated protein 5 (ATP-binding cassette sub-family C member 5) (Multi-specific organic anion transporter C) (MOAT-C) (SMRP) (pABC11) [MRP5]


Bruch membrane aging alters the gene expression profile of human retinal pigment epithelium.

We investigated the effects of age-related changes within the Bruch membrane on the gene expression profile of the RPE. Immortalized human ARPE-19 cells were seeded onto acellular human Bruch membrane from younger and older donors and harvested 72 hr later; total RNA was isolated and the gene expression profile was determined using the Affymetrix Human Genome U95A gene chip. Twelve genes were upregulated and 8 genes were downregulated with Bruch membrane aging; RT-PCR confirms that Bruch membrane aging upregulates genes in RPE cells encoding for transforming growth factor alpha and downregulates genes for vitronectin and the membrane transporter ABCC5. The role of these changes in the pathogenesis of age-related diseases such as macular degeneration remains to be elucidated.
