The role of Decorin in organising the extracellular matrix was examined in normal human corneas and in corneas from patients with Congenital Stromal Corneal Dystrophy (CSCD). In CSCD, corneal clouding occurs due to a truncating mutation (c.967delT) in the decorin (DCN) gene. Normal ...
Congenital stromal corneal dystrophy (CSCD) is an autosomal dominant condition with clouding of the cornea due to stromal opacities. It is caused by mutations in the decorin gene (DCN) leading to the expression of a truncated form of decorin. In an attempt to replicate this condition ...
The aim of this study was to characterize the congenital stromal corneal dystrophy (CSCD) pathological and clinical phenotype in a Chinese family with a novel mutation of decorin and its possible molecular pathogenesis.
