· Background: βIG-H3 is a recently described extracellular matrix protein that is present in various organs. In rabbit corneas, increased βIG (the rabbit form of βIG-H3) mRNA levels were shown during corneal development and wound healing. In this study, we investigated the localization of βIG-H3 protein in scarring human corneas. · Methods: Corneal buttons obtained during keratoplasty were examined. Immunohistological detection using a polyclonal antipeptide antibody against the βIG-H3 protein… CONTINUE READING
