After an epithelium is wounded, multiple soluble and extracellular matrix-associated signals induce a repair response. An often-overlooked signal is the endogenous electrical field established in the vicinity of the wound immediately upon disruption of epithelial integrity. Previous studies have detected lateral electric fields of approximately 42 mV mm-1 near bovine corneal wounds. In addition, electric fields on the order of 100-200 mV mm-1 have been measured lateral to wounds in mammalian… CONTINUE READING
