The Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST
), NASA's next high-energy astrophysics satellite, achieved a major milestone last year when engineers completed the main detector array.
Guided by the finer resolution afforded by radio and X-ray instruments, GLAST
will detect radiation from the jets' base, allowing astronomers to deduce the jets' overall shape, the types of particles they accelerate, and how they accelerate those particles.
In our previous studies, different hyperbaric pressure levels (15 mmHg additional pressure/30 mmHg additional pressure/45 mmHg additional pressure/60 mmHg additional pressure) were used to test Muller cell survival and GLAST
We have previously reported that deletion of the ASK1 gene prevents RGC death in various mouse models of glaucoma, including retinal ischemia, optic nerve injury (ONI), and GLAST
KO mice (GLAST/ASK1 double KO mice) [15,35,36].

) mRNA during kanamycin-induced cochlear insult in rats," Hearing Research, vol.
Muller cells have high affinity L glutamate\ L aspartate transporter (GLAST
) expression and plays an important role in transport of extracellular glutamate through GLAST
transporter from the synaptic spaces of the retina.
(81) Mice deficient in the glutamate/ aspartate transporter (GLAST
), a major glutamate transporter in the retina, display optic nerve degeneration and are used as model mice for normaltension glaucoma.
But since the phenomenon has never been observed, the upcoming launch of the GLAST
(Gammaray Large Area Space Telescope) satellite again looms large in significance.
