In Vitro and In Vivo Models to Study Corneal Endothelial-mesenchymal Transition Wei-Ting Ho1,2, Chien-Chia Su3, Jung-Shen Chang3, Shu-Wen Chang1, Fung-Rong Hu3, Tzuu-Shuh Jou2,4, I-Jong Wang3,4 1Department of Ophthalmology, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital, 2Institute of Clinical Medicine, National Taiwan University, 3Department of Ophthalmology, National Taiwan University Hospital, 4College of Medicine, National Taiwan University A primary culture of bovine corneal endothelial cells was used to investigate the mechanism of corneal endothelial-mesenchymal transition. Furthermore, a rat corneal endothelium cryoinjury model was used to demonstrate corneal endothelial-mesenchymal transition in vivo.

Phenotypes of Trypsin- and Collagenase-prepared Bovine Corneal Endothelial Cells in the Presence of a Selective Rho Kinase Inhibitor, Y-27632 Molecular Vision. 2015 | Pubmed ID: 26097378 To optimize isolation of viable bovine corneal endothelial cells (BCECs), we evaluated the effectiveness of various preparation protocols. This entailed comparing the effects of collagenase A and trypsin in the presence and absence of a Rho kinase inhibitor, Y-27632, on proliferation and tight junctional and cytoskeletal integrity during their expansion.
Inhibition of Matrix Metalloproteinase Activity Reverses Corneal Endothelial-mesenchymal Transition The American Journal of Pathology. Aug, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 26216284 Ex vivo culture or regeneration of corneal endothelial cells often is subjected to gradual endothelial-mesenchymal transition and loss of function. Here, we found that during ex vivo culture, bovine corneal endothelial cells underwent endothelial-mesenchymal transition and had an up-regulated expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinases. Inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase activity in confluent bovine corneal endothelial cells decreased the level of endothelial-mesenchymal transition regulators: snail and slug. The phosphorylation and degradation of the key Wnt signaling pathway modulator active β-catenin also were accelerated with the broad-spectrum matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor Marimastat, which may result from decreased N-cadherin shedding and increased intact N-cadherin molecules on the cell membrane. Intracameral injection of Marimastat also suppressed basic fibroblast growth factor-induced endothelial-mesenchymal transition in a rat corneal endothelium cryo-injury model and significantly diminished the corneal edema. Our study indicated that inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase activity can reverse endothelial-mesenchymal transition and preserve the function of corneal endothelial cells both during ex vivo culture and in vivo. This may offer a potential therapeutic target in regenerative medicine for the treatment of corneal endothelial dysfunctions.
