Abstract: The wide distribution of the HNK-1 epitope in anterior segment tissues and its association with a variety of extracellular and cellular structures was ultrastructurally demonstrated. In PEX syndrome, the varying labelling density of PEX fibers indicates a deviating carbohydrate composition in different locations of the eye. The HNK-1 epitope might be involved in the adhesiveness of PEX deposits on intraocular surfaces.
