In vivo characterization of host and bacterial protease expression during Pseudomonas aeruginosa corneal infections in naive and immunized mice.

Abstract

PURPOSE The corneal destruction resulting from P. aeruginosa keratitis is thought to be due, in part, to the actions of host and bacterial proteases on corneal tissue. The intent of the current study was to compare host and bacterial protease expression in the ocular tissues of mice that have been shown to be susceptible to corneal infection with mice that… (More)
