It was determined whether the capillaries in the ciliary muscle are of the blood-tissue barrier or of the permeable non-barrier type. Ciliary body and iris of normal human and animal eyes were examined by electron microscopy and by immunohistochemical staining with a panel of antibodies recognizing endothelial blood-brain barrier markers. In addition, horseradish peroxidase (HRP) tracer studies of the anterior segment were carried out in rabbits. Our results demonstrated that the capillary… CONTINUE READING
