Using a rabbit anti-acidic fibroblast growth factor (anti-aFGF) antiserum, we tried to establish a precise mapping of aFGF localization in normal human ocular structures, from samples obtained by autopsies. Cell cultures of retinal pigment epithelium and ciliary pigment epithelium were also established and immunofluorescence studies were performed after 1 month. Corneal and conjunctival epithelia were strongly positive for anti-aFGF antibodies as well as the subcapsular epithelium of the lens… CONTINUE READING
