Increased latent gelatinase activity in the sclera of visually deprived chicks.


PURPOSE Gelatinase activity was measured in the normal chick sclera and in sclera of form-deprived (myopic) eyes to assess the role of this metalloproteinase in ocular elongation associated with experimental myopia. METHODS Gelatinases were extracted from anterior and posterior regions of normal chick sclera and sclera from eyes that had been form-vision… (More)
