• differential
  • The developped ocular surface immunocompetent system on HCE demonstrate to be able to monitor macrophages and dendritic cells migration into the corneal tissue underling their differential positioning and immunological role within the corneal epithelium. (arvojournals.org)
  • Here, we show that the transcription factor OVOL2 maintains the transcriptional program of human corneal epithelium cells (CECs), a derivative of the surface ectoderm, and that OVOL2 may regulate the differential transcriptional programs of the two lineages. (nii.ac.jp)
  • cells
  • In transverse sections, occludin and ZO-1 were localized at the apical cell-cell junctions between superficial cells in stratified corneal epithelium. (lancs.ac.uk)
  • Following removal of the endothelium, eosinophilic and metachromatic material accumulated in the anterior stroma and, eventually, in the basal cells of the epithelium, seemingly washed through the stroma to the corneal surface by a flow of fluid from the anterior chamber. (arvojournals.org)
  • It was concluded that--least for a limited time--the stromal cells can function independently of the epithelium and the endothelium. (arvojournals.org)
  • Production of MIP-2 by the corneal cells was examined by ELISA. (arvojournals.org)
  • In hemostasis, radial limbal stripes of slow migrating cells proceeded toward the corneal center were observed and the turnover of this process was about 4 months. (arvojournals.org)
  • ocular
  • Signs and symptoms include conjunctivalisation, corneal vascularisation, edema, ocular discomfort or pain, poor vision, and blindness, which are likely associated with failure in the process of regenerating the corneal epithelium. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cellular
  • Cellular damage following corneal hyperosmolarity and dryness and co-cultered with THP-1 was evaluated by adenilate kinase release in the medium. (arvojournals.org)
  • study
  • In this study, we plan to perform a prospective randomized study to determine the effectiveness of topical insulin as a primary treatment for corneal epithelial defect in patients undergoing vitrectomy for diabetic retinopathy and penetrating keratoplasty. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Our study revealed immunoproteasome expression in non-inflammed WT mouse corneal epithelium. (arvojournals.org)
  • In this IRB-approved study, central corneal images were prospectively captured from 10 age-matched healthy control eyes, 24 eyes with clinically diagnosed dry eye and 43 eyes with clinically diagnosed Sjögren's syndrome, using IVCM. (arvojournals.org)
  • investigate
  • Immunostaining specific to the immunoproteasome subunit Lmp7 was performed to investigate immunoproteasome localization within WT corneal layers. (arvojournals.org)
  • expression
  • The expression of all three connexins was increased at 12 and 24 hours after corneal abrasion. (arvojournals.org)
  • Specifically, the data show that P. aeruginosa can use T3S independent means to traverse corneal epithelium if MyD88 dependent defenses are compromised, and illustrate that virulence factor expression can vary among "identical" strains from different sources. (arvojournals.org)
  • efficiency
  • Comparison of three sources of wild-type PAO1 in the blot/EGTA model showed varying capacity to penetrate and damage the epithelium, correlating with differences in T3S efficiency. (arvojournals.org)
  • represents
  • This seems to reflect that the action spectrum represents the resultant curve of several UV-absorbing components within the epithelium and that the question as to whether a particular component may act as a target substance is assumed to depend on qualities such as its molar absorptivity, subcellular concentration, as well as local intracellular conditions. (arvojournals.org)
  • lower
  • Isotope incorporation, in the absence of epithelium, was lower near the anterior surface and slightly higher in the posterior stroma within the first 24 hours as compared with the normal cornea. (arvojournals.org)
  • damage
  • It is suggested that seasonal adaptation of mammalian corneal epithelium in response to variation in ambient radiation may be nature's strategy for countering radiation damage to the eye. (arvojournals.org)
