Abstract

PURPOSE: Insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) may modulate insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) action and are important regulating factors in the IGF system. Our aim was to determine the presence of IGFBP-2 and -5 in the anterior compartment of the eye and to compare the histological sites of these IGFBP proteins with the respective IGFBP mRNAs. METHODS: To investigate this, immunohistochemistry was used to detect the presence of IGFBP-2 and -5 proteins, and in situ hybridization was used to determine the presence of IGFBP-2 and -5 mRNAs. The studies were performed in normal adult male Sprague-Dawley rats. Immunohistochemistry was performed by the immunoperoxidase method wit..
