Significance: This study suggests that ATRA, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of a number of tumor suppressor proteins. Thereby, it may increase the survival of lens epithelial cells and prevent age-related cataract. Therefore, pharmacological formulations encompassing “ATRA or its analogues“ may be used to treat Cataract.
