    Weiming Mao
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, North Texas Eye Research Institute, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth, Texas 76107, USA
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 54:3600-6. 2013
    ..To circumvent this problem, we took advantage of the phagocytic property of trabecular meshwork (TM) cells, and developed a novel magnetic bead-based method that enables us to isolate pure MTM cells...

    Weiming Mao
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, North Texas Eye Research Institute, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth, Texas 76107, USA
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 53:7043-51. 2012
    ..The purpose of our study was to determine whether a functional canonical Wnt signaling pathway exists in the human TM (HTM)...
  3. doi request reprint Characterization of a spontaneously immortalized bovine trabecular meshwork cell line
    Weiming Mao
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, North Texas Eye Research Institute, University of North Texas Health Science Center, CBH449, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76107, USA

  4. doi request reprint SFRP1 promoter methylation and expression in human trabecular meshwork cells
    Weiming Mao
    North Texas Eye Research Institute, Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, University of North Texas Health Science Center, CBH440, Fort Worth, TX 76107, USA

    ..AZA-dC treatment also elevated SFRP1 expression by approximately two fold in NCI-H460 cells (n = 3, p < 0.01). Our data suggest that the differential expression of SFRP1 in HTM cells is not due to differential promoter methylation...
