By using the techniques of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Southern hybridization, we demonstrated that human Tenon's capsule fibroblasts in primary cultures, express the messenger RNA (mRNA) transcripts encoding transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), but not those coding for aFGF and TGF-beta 2. Two PCR products were obtained for TGF-beta 1: a major fragment of 161 base pairs… CONTINUE READING
