Bruch's membrane is a layer composed of collagen fibers located just beneath the retina. This study validates a strategy used to map the morphological and adhesion characteristics of collagen fibers in Bruch's membrane. Atomic force microscopy tips were functionalized with different chemical groups and used to map the hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions on(More)
The Bruch's membrane is located beneath the retina in vertebrate eyes. We have used atomic force microscopy to examine the morphological and adhesion properties of collagen fibers located in different portions of the membrane. The D-periodicity of the fibers was 62.54 +/- 4.25 nm and 63.78 +/- 4.14 nm for regions away from the optic nerve and close to it,(More)
