Figure 7. Expression of Notch1 in the
mouse corneal epithelium after wounding as determined by relative
quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The
expression levels are presented relative to the baseline unwounded
samples. When the rate of proliferation had peaked at 24 h, Notch1
expression was reduced (78%±3%, p<0.001). By 48 h, the expression
had recovered and increased beyond the baseline. After six days, Notch1
returned to baseline levels.
