Several techniques were utilized to assess the levels, disposition and cellular sources of isoforms 1 and 2 of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) in the posterior pole of the monkey eye. Freshly dissected tissues, as well as the saline vehicles in which dissections were performed, were analysed by sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. In all tissues TGF-beta 2 was the predominant isoform, with beta 2:beta 1 ratios of 6:1 for neural retina (as ng g-1) and 425:1 for vitreous (as… CONTINUE READING
