Core Tip In this study, in vitro experiments showed that genipin can reverse high glucose-induced damage in cell proliferation and apoptosis, while reducing energy metabolism, oxidative stress, and inflammatory injury induced by high glucose. The in vitro results showed that intravitreal injection with genipin reduced the expression of CHGA, UCP2, and glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1), and the CHGA/UCP2/GLUT1 signalling pathway may play an important role in this process. This study innovatively treated streptozotocin-induced mice with an intraocular injection of genipin, and concluded that genipin ameliorates diabetic retinopathy by downregulating advanced glycation end products, thereby protecting human retinal microvascular endothelial cells.
