Materials and Methods: Primary SFs cultured from mouse and human sclera were treated with atropine and carbachol for 5 days. Lysed cell RNA was used for real-time PCR, protein was used for Western blot analysis and TG-2 transamidase activity was measured by ELISA. Immunohistochemistry was done to determine the expression of TGases. Results: Immunohistochemistry and western blot confirmed the expression of TGs-1, 2, 3 and 5 proteins in cultured SFs and eye tissues. Real time PCR showed TG-1, 2, 5 transcript levels to be down regulated 3 fold (p||Source Title:||PLoS ONE||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/110329||ISSN:||19326203||DOI:||10.1371/journal.pone.0018326|
