An increasing concentration of extracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]e) consistently induces epithelial differentiation, but its effect on proliferation remains variable. We investigated the effect of [Ca2+]e on two different cell populations: the peripheral corneal (PC) and limbal (L) epithelia, the latter containing corneal stem cells. Primary clonal (18 cells/cm2) cultures from rabbit limbal and peripheral corneal epithelia were established in serum-free MCDB 151 medium containing growth-promoting… CONTINUE READING
