As the oocytes of Xenopus laevis grow and develop they accumulate vast stores of mRNA for use during early embryogenesis. The stored mRNA is stabilized and may be prevented from being translated in oocytes by the binding of a defined set of oocyte-specific proteins to form messenger RNP (mRNP) particles. A key event in the interaction of protein with mRNA(More)
Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL) is an established surgical procedure for the treatment of corneal disorders such as corneal ectasia and keratoconus. This method of treatment stabilises the corneal structure and increases rigidity, reducing the requirement for corneal transplantation. Since its development, many scientific studies have been conducted to(More)
Before the discovery of corneal cross-linking (CXL), patients with keratoconus would have had to undergo corneal transplantation, or wear rigid gas permeable lenses (RGPs) that would temporarily flatten the cone, thereby improving the vision. The RGP contact lens (CL) would not however alter the corneal stability and if the keratoconus was progressive, the(More)
PURPOSE To compare the safety, efficacy, and predictability of laser in situ keratomileusis treatments at 1 year postprocedure using a novel geometric ray tracing algorithm with outcomes of treatments using wavefront-optimized, wavefront-guided, and topography-guided ablation profiles of an excimer laser (WaveLight GmbH, Erlangen, Germany; Alcon(More)
