The effects of serum, transforming growth factor (TGF) beta 1, bFGF, and heparin on in vitro myofibroblast transformation was studied. Primary rabbit corneal keratocytes were grown under serum-free conditions or in media supplemented with serum (10% fetal calf serum), TGF beta 1 (0.1-10 ng/ml), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) (0.1-10 ng/ml), or… CONTINUE READING
