Conversely, Baird et al. 09) increased risk compared to e3-carriers [195]. Since this finding was only present in women, the authors suggested that there may be a gender-specific role in progression of AMD in persons with an e2-allele. Fritsche et al. could not corroborate any gender-specific role of the APOE-alleles [197]. Schmidt et al. suggested a modifying effect of APOE genotypes on the smoking-associated risk of AMD [187], particularly for CNV [321]. The effect of smoking was most deleterious for APOE e2 carriers, compared to APOE e4 carriers and persons with the APOE e3/e3 genotype.

The retina has high levels of oxygen, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and light exposure, which may cause oxidative damage and inflammation [198]. Cell damage and inflammation upregulates the influx of cholesterol, [199] but also the synthesis of APOE [200]. The APOE e4 variant inhibits dimerization of APOE that normally occurs with the e3 and e2 variants [201]. Therefore, the APOE e4 travels the interstitium more easily than the other APOE variants which are confined more intracellularly.
