Keratitis is a common cause of blindness. Current anti-inflammatory drugs used in keratitis have profound side effects. Small peptides derived from endogenous proteins potentially display both desired efficiency and safety. We identified an 11-amino-acid peptide, H-RN, from hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), an endogenous protein with anti-inflammatory(More)
Keratitis is a worldwide sight-threatening disease. Current drugs generate various adverse effects. Large molecules hardly penetrate ocular tissues. Small peptides derived from endogenous protein display certain advantages. Previously we indentified a novel peptide (PAPep) from human pancreatitis-associated protein (PAP), a protein with protective effect(More)
In keratitis, keratocytes play a vital role by releasing inflammatory cytokines and expressing intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1(ICAM-1). GC31 is a peptide derived from thrombomodulin, an endogenous protein with potential anti-inflammation properties. We evaluated the protective effect of GC31 in LPS- or poly(I:C)-induced corneal fibroblasts. Cultured(More)
