Abstract

2-Cys peroxiredoxins (PRDX) are novel antioxidant enzymes that eliminate the hydrogen peroxide in cells to protect the cellular components from reactive oxygen species. To evaluate whether 2-Cys PRDX family plays a role in human ciliary body, the expression of PRDX I, II and III on normal human ciliary body was investigated. Three normal human ciliary body tissues obtained from three donor eyeballs were examined by an immunohistochemistry using light microscopy and fluorescent microscopy with antibodies directed against the PRDX I, II and III. In the normal human ciliary body, PRDX I, II and III were immunolocalized to the non-pigmented epithelial cells and ciliary muscle fibers. It suggests that 2-Cys PRDXs may have physiological functions to protect cells in human ciliary body.
