PURPOSE To determine the association of the KL-6 epitope (sugar moiety) with MUC1 and its distribution on the ocular surface of human non-dry and dry eyes. METHODS The human ocular surface was examined immunohistochemically and immunoelectron microscopically using monoclonal antibody (mAb) KL-6, which recognize a carbohydrate epitope of MUC1. The expression patterns of KL-6 epitope in corneal and conjunctival cells were examined by impression cytology from 24 non-dry eye volunteers and 43 dry… CONTINUE READING
