Genetic modification of corneal neovascularization in Dstn corn1 mice


Mutations in the gene for destrin (Dstn), an actin depolymerizing factor, lead to corneal abnormalities in mice. A null mutation in Dstn, termed Dstn corn1 , isolated and maintained in the A.BY background (A.BY Dstn corn1 ), results in corneal epithelial hyperproliferation, inflammation, and neovascularization. We previously reported that neovascularization… (More)
