PURPOSE In an effort to identify choroidal factors potentially involved in the regulation of ocular growth, proteins released into culture medium of organ-cultured choroids were compared between control eyes and eyes recovering from form deprivation myopia. METHODS The choroids were obtained from the posterior poles of control and recovering chick eyes,(More)
PURPOSE The turnover of chick scleral proteoglycans from control and form-vision deprived (myopic) eyes was compared in vivo and in explant cultures to determine whether proteoglycan degradation is altered during the development of myopia and to characterize the mechanism of proteoglycan turnover in the sclera. METHODS Seven-day-old chicks were(More)
