Abstract:Cultured human primary CECs and a human corneal epithelial cell line both responded to small EFs with perpendicular reorientation and cathodally-directed migration. Cell responses were qualitatively similar to those reported previously for bovine CECs. The endogenous EFs generated by wounded cornea may play an important role in promoting cell shape changes and directed migration of CECs during the healing process.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
