Previous studies of actin and actin-binding proteins in corneal myofibroblasts suggest the development of a contractile apparatus composed, in part, of F-actin micro-filament bundles, i.e. stress fibers. To better understand the mechanics of wound contraction and the relationship between microfilament bundles and wound closure, we have analyzed the spatial and temporal organization of stress fibers during the process of corneal wound healing. Rabbit corneas (26 eyes) received 6 mm full… CONTINUE READING
