Temporal expression of types XII and XIV collagen mRNA and protein during avian corneal development.


Using immunohistochemistry and competitive PCR for collagen types XII and XIV, we have followed the expression of these fibril-associated molecules during development of the avian cornea. By immunofluorescence histochemistry, both molecules are found in the acellular primary stroma and are therefore presumably of epithelial origin. During formation and… (More)
