Developmental changes in proteoglycans of rabbit corneal stroma.

Abstract

Proteoglycans have been extracted from rabbit corneal stromas at developmental stages from fetal to adult. Ion exchange fractionation and gel chromatography show that proteodermatan sulfates decrease in sulfation and relative amount and proteokeratan sulfates increase in sulfation and relative amount during development. There are small increases in size of all of the proteoglycans up to 2 weeks after birth, and the final adult composition is achieved by 8 weeks.
