Galectin-1 influences migration of retinal pigment epithelial cells.


PURPOSE To determine whether the beta-galactoside-binding matricellular protein Gal-1 is expressed in human specimens of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and to evaluate its influence on RPE migration. METHODS RT-PCR was used to detect Gal-1-specific transcripts in PVR membranes, and the expression pattern of Gal-1 was examined by… (More)
