Immunofluorescence staining of fibronectin, collagen IV, and laminin in RPE cells. The expression of fibronectin, collagen IV, and laminin was evaluated by pretreatment with 20 μM LY294002 for 12 h and then incubation with 24 h in RPE cells under high glucose conditions. The RPE cells showed more intense staining under high glucose conditions compared with NG or . (a) Fibronectin; (b) collagen IV; (c) laminin. DAPI: blue.
