BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate corneal wound healing after femtosecond laser-assisted keratoplasty (FLAK) using in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM). PATIENTS AND METHODS Prospective, interventional, consecutive case series of 17 eyes after mushroom-shaped FLAK. IVCM was performed preoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively to assess(More)
The production of affinity column purified (specific) anti-actin is described. With the immunization scheme employed, all rabbits produced precipitating antibodies over several months, so that 30 mg specific anti-actin per rabbit could be isolated in 6 months. The antibodies against native and detergent denatured smooth muscle actin are characterized by(More)
The suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) at the base of the hypothalamus are known to be the site of the endogenous circadian pacemaker in mammals. The SCN are innervated by the retinohypothalamic tract, which conveys photic information to the SCN. GABA is one of the most abundant neurotransmitters in the SCN, and has been implicated in the modulation of photic(More)
