Changes of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase in the corneal epithelium after UVB rays. Histochemical and biochemical study.

In this study, the effects of UVA and UVB rays on antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, catalase) were examined in the corneal epithelium. The corneas of albino rabbits were irradiated with a UV lamp generating UVA (365 nm wavelength) or UVB rays (312 nm wavelength), 1 x daily for 5 min, from a distance of 0.03 m, over 4 days… CONTINUE READING
