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.
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.
