Abstract: The permeability of the human ciliary epithelium to horseradish peroxidase (PO) has been studied in vitro with the electron microscope. Ciliary body and iris specimens were obtained from freshly enucleated eyes. PO was applied at the stromal side of the epithelium, and was left for 120 min. The movement of PO through the intercellular spaces of the human ciliary epithelium was blocked apically in the lateral intercellular spaces of the non-pigmented epithelial cells, indicating that these cells are girdled by …
