Therefore, in this study, we tested the effects of activating ERK1/2, P38, and JNK in a model of light-induced retinal degeneration. We also used specific MAPK antagonists, inhibitors of p-P38 (SB203580), p-ERK1/2 (U0126), and p-JNK (SP600125), to investigate the effects of MAPKs on photoreceptor degeneration and inflammation during light exposure.
