Release of neuronotrophic factor from rabbit corneal epithelium during wound healing and nerve regeneration.

Abstract

Epithelial neuronotropic factor (ENF) is secreted by cultured epithelial cells of rabbit cornea and conjunctiva, and is active in promoting survival and inducing neurite outgrowth of cultured trigeminal neurons. This study evaluated the relation of ENF to corneal nerve regeneration utilizing a model of heptanol-induced epithelial wounding. The organ culture… (More)
