Figure 7. Immunolocalization of N-cadherin in eyes of 1- to 2-month-old mice. Expression of N-cadherin is detectable in the corneal
endothelium (ce) and the iris (i) of wild-type (WT) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 knockout (MMP-9KO) mice. Increased expression
is seen in the adhesion between the corneal endothelium and the iris epithelium in the transgenic (TG) and TG/MMP-9KO mice.
