Early cytokine synthesis in the excised mouse cornea.


Corneas excised from normal BALB/c mice and incubated in vitro were analyzed for the production of "early-warning" cytokines via reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and ELISA. It was found that the trauma of excision stimulated rapid IL-1 alpha synthesis, with peak protein accumulation occurring at 6 h, whereas IL-6 synthesis was maximal at 18 h… (More)
