Corneal neovascularisation (CNV), with consequent loss of transparency, is due to an imbalance of proangiogenic factors. Cell-surface nucleolin (NCL) has been associated with neo-angiogenesis. There are studies identifying NCL translocation from nucleus to the cell surface, which is essential for endothelial cell proliferation. To find the possible role of NCL in the generation of corneal neovessels, the aim of this study is to characterise the NCL presence and cell-localisation in non-injured… CONTINUE READING
