- Role of the hepatocyte growth factor gene in refractive errorSundar Veerappan
Centre for Eye Research Australia, University of Melbourne, Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Australia
Ophthalmology 117:239-45.e1-2. 2010..Several genetic loci have been associated with myopia but none to date have been reported for hypermetropia. We investigated the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) as a candidate gene influencing these 2 refractive error states...
