Role of calcium and calmodulin in hemidesmosome formation in vitro


Intact epithelial sheets were removed from rabbit corneas using Dispase II, a bacterial neutral protease. The freed sheets were placed on denuded corneal basal laminae and incubated at 35 degrees C for 3, 6, 18, or 24 h. Epithelial-basal lamina preparations were incubated in culture medium that either contained (a) varying concentrations of Ca2+ ions, (b… (More)
