Spermatogenic cells synthesize a unique 70-kDa heat shock protein (HSP70-2) during prophase of meiosis I, and targeted disruption of the Hsp70-2 gene has shown that this protein is required for spermatogenic cell differentiation in adult mice. HSP70-2 is associated with synaptonemal complexes formed between paired homologous chromosomes during meiotic(More)
PURPOSE Increased apoptosis in the conjunctival epithelium has been observed in experimental murine keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS). Topical cyclosporine (CsA) has been noted to reduce conjunctival epithelial apoptosis in chronic canine and human KCS. The purpose of this study is to determine if topical CsA treatment inhibits conjunctival epithelial(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To study bleb morphology and positional intraocular pressure (IOP) change (IOP supine to IOP sitting). PATIENTS AND METHODS In this observational case series, blebs were graded for height, extent, vascularity, microcysts, and "ring of steel." Positional IOP change was analyzed using the paired t test. Associations between IOP(More)
