Figure 4. Fibroblast growth factor 2 loss does not affect epithelial-mesenchymal transition upon injury
Loss of fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) does not affect the consequence of epithelial-mesenchymal transition in lens epithelial cells upon injury. Immunohistochemistry for α-smooth muscle actin (αSMA) in an injured lens of a fgf2+/+ or fgf2-/- mouse. The cells forms a cell multilayer (asterisks) around the capsular break (arrows) as shown by hematoxylin and eosin staining at day 5 (A, fgf2+/+ and C, fgf2-/-). These cells are labeled by anti-αSMA antibody (B, fgf2+/+ and D, fgf2-/-). AC indicates the anterior capsule and the arrows indicate capsular breaks. The bar represents 100 μm.
