Figure 7. P2X7 receptor expression and
activation on lens epithelial cells. Cells were fixed, permeabilized,
and then incubated with a P2X7 antibody (A). Nuclei were stained
with propidium iodide. Cells were observed using the confocal
microscopy. P2X7 receptor activation by ATP and BzATP causes YO-PRO-1
dye uptake in lens cells (B).
