Abstract [en]

Purpose : Notch1 is suggested to play an important role during tissue development and in differentiation of the corneal epithelial cells whereas its inhibitors Dlk1 and Numb keep these cells in an immature status. Our purpose was to evaluate the presence of these factors in aniridia-related keratopathy (ARK) and in normal fetal and adult human corneas.

Methods : Two human fetal corneas, 10 and 20 weeks of gestation, two naïve corneal buttons from patients with advanced ARK, three corneal buttons from patients with ARK undergoing re-transplantation, as well as two adult healthy control corneas were processed for immunohistochemistry using antibodies against Notch1, Dlk1 and Numb.

Results : Identical staining patterns were found for Notch1 in normal adult and fetal corneas, with staining around the basal epithelial cells and in a few streaks in the stroma. In ARK corneas, Notch1 was not detected in the pannus of the stroma. On the contrary, the pannus in ARK was labeled with antibodies against Dlk1. Dlk1 was also abundant in the epithelium and in the stroma of fetal corneas but was absent from the stroma of normal adult corneas. Numb was present in the adult normal corneas and in addition labeled the ARK and fetal corneas in a pattern resembling that of Dlk1.

Conclusions : The lack of Notch1 together with abundant Dlk1 and Numb, suggest a disturbed balance between these important factors in ARK, likely to hamper differentiation of the progenitor cell population and to be important for the pathophysiology of ARK.
