PURPOSE To investigate transcription of members of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta superfamily and corresponding receptors in human corneal epithelium and stroma. METHODS Transcription of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP)-2, BMP-3, BMP-4, BMP-5, and BMP-7; growth- differentiation factor (GDF)-5), and BMP receptors (BMPR) types I (BMPR-IA, BMPR-IB) and II (BMPR-II) was investigated by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in ex vivo and cultured cells.
