Decreased fibronectin levels in aqueous humor after corneal injury.

Abstract

Fibronectin plays an important role in wound healing and cell differentiation. The present study measures fibronectin levels in aqueous humor from injured corneas. In response to transcorneal freezing treatments, a thickened scar-like matrix is deposited on the posterior surface of rabbit corneas. This posterior collagenous layer (PCL) is visible grossly… (More)
