Developmental Regulation of Corneal Protective Mechanisms.

Canner, James.

Abstract: As the cornea is exposed to damaging environmental insults, such as ultraviolet (UV) irradiation and noxious chemicals, it has evolved mechanisms to protect itself. Previous work in our laboratory identified one mechanism of protection against UV irradiation, which involves the sub-cellular localization of ferritin to the nuclei of corneal epithelial (CE) cells. Ferritin is localized to ... read more
