This study aimed to evaluate proposed molecular markers related to eye limbal stem cells (SC) and to identify novel associated genes. The expression of a set of genes potentially involved in stemness was assessed in freshly prepared limbal, corneal and conjunctival tissues. PAX6, AC133, K12 and OCT4 were detected in all the tissues and p63(+)/K3(-)/K12(+)/Nodal(+)/Cx43(+) were expressed in conjunctival, p63(-)/K3(+)/K12(+)/Nodal(-)/Cx43(+) in corneal, and p63(+)/K3(-)/K12(-)/Nodal(-)/Cx43(-) in… CONTINUE READING
