Corneal morphogenesis during development and wound healing

Abstract

It is known that wound healing and tissue regeneration recapitulate many of the cellular processes and signaling pathways of embryonic development, but wound healing in mammals seldom restores the lost tissue functions. For example, corneal injuries often lead to the formation of opaque scar tissue that impairs vision. Morphogenesis of ocular surface… (More)
