Phase-contrast and transmission electron microscopic studies were performed to evaluate the effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF) upon the morphology of lens epithelial cells (LECs) obtained from human cataractous lenses, cultured on human anterior lens capsules, and divided into the following three groups: group 1 receiving no EGF supplement, group 2 supplemented with 1 ng/ml EGF, and group 3 supplemented with 10 ng/ml EGE Phase-contrast microscopy revealed that the cells in the group… CONTINUE READING
