Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of ocular surface diseases. This study investigated the regulated expression of gelatinases (MMP-2 and -9), collagenases (MMP-1 and -13) and stromelysins (MMP-3, -10, and -11) by TGF-beta1 in cultured human corneal epithelial cells. Primary human corneal epithelial cell cultures were(More)
Accumulation of leukocytes in inflamed tissue involves their migration through vascular endothelium and then in the connective tissue. Recently we utilized a barrier of human synovial, dermal, and lung fibroblasts (HSF, HDF, and HLF) grown on polycarbonate filters as a model of human polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) migration through connective tissue.
