Fibronectin is thought to contribute to the adhesion of corneal epithelium during epithelial repair, presumably by mediating epithelial attachment to stroma during epithelial migration. To understand the mechanism of the interaction of fibronectin with corneal epithelial cells, the effects of intact plasma fibronectin and of the synthetic peptide GRGDS from the cell binding domain of fibronectin on the attachment of rabbit corneal epithelial cells have been examined. When dissociated epithelial… CONTINUE READING
