PURPOSE Membrane-associated mucins play an important role for protecting epithelial cells at the ocular surface from microbial invasion. The purpose of this study was to determine whether multipurpose solutions (MPSs) for contact lens care and their ingredients alter the expression of membrane-associated mucins in human corneal epithelial (HCE-T) cells. METHODS SV40-immortalized HCE-T cells were cultured in Dulbecco's modified Eagle medium/F12 medium with 5% fetal bovine serum to confluence… CONTINUE READING
