Abstract

Although the retinal angiogenic and mitogenic factors have been identified to be acidic and basic fibroblast growth factors (aFGF and bFGF), little information has so far been available about the cells producing them and their function in retinal tissues. We found, by in situ hybridization, that the expression pattern of the aFGF gene differed remarkably from that of the bFGF gene in adult rat eyes. Our results demonstrated that the aFGF gene was produced by photoreceptor visual cells, neuronal cells in the inner nuclear layer and ganglion cells of the retina, in addition to pigment epithelial cells of the choroid, iris and ciliary body, and epithelial cells of the cornea, conjunctiva and lens, while bFGF was synthesized solely by the photoreceptor visual cells.
