PURPOSE To evaluate whether mouse adipose tissue mesothelial cells (ATMCs) share morphologic and biochemical characteristics with mouse corneal endothelial cells (CECs) and to evaluate their capacity to adhere to the decellularized basal membrane of human anterior lens capsules (HALCs) as a potential tissue-engineered surrogate for corneal endothelium replacement. METHODS Adipose tissue mesothelial cells were isolated from the visceral adipose tissue of adult mice, and their expression of… CONTINUE READING
