PURPOSE Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is associated with a decreased content of hyaluronan in the trabecular meshwork and in the juxtacanalicular connective tissue. In this study, the authors examined selected regions of the anterior segment to localize and determine the content of CD44H, a transmembrane multifunctional glycoprotein and the principal receptor of hyaluronan. METHODS Sections of ethanol-fixed anterior segments of six POAG and six normal postmortem eyes were analyzed by… CONTINUE READING
