Immune Protection of Lens in Eye Injury Challenges Idea of Immune Isolation

3D surface structure imaging at one day post-corneal wounding shows immune cells (CD45+, green) migrating along within ciliary zonule fibrils (MAGP1+, white) that extend along the surface of the matrix capsule that surrounds the lens (perlecan+, red). Also seen are the ciliary zonules (white) that link the lens to the ciliary body. Nuclei in both these tissues of the eye are labeled blue.
