      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: BMP2

        • Transcription of BMP-2, BMP-3, BMP-4, BMP-5, and BMP-7 and receptors of BMPR-IA, BMPR-IB and BMPR-II was detected in ex vivo and cultured corneal epithelium and stroma. [1]
      • Hormone: BMP5

      • Hormone: BMP7

      • Hormone: GDF5

        • GDF-5 was transcribed only in corneal stromal cells (not in corneal epithelium), suggesting that this cytokine may be an important mediator between keratocytes and epithelial cells. [1]
        • GDF-5 inhibited proliferation of corneal epithelial and stromal cells. [1]
      • Hormone: BMP-3

      • Hormone: SDF-1alpha

      • Hormone: SDF-1beta
