Chaotic Confetti Cornea

This light-sheet microscopy image depicts a K14CreERT2-Confetti mouse cornea that received a severe epithelial debridement wound, spanning limbus-limbus to mimic limbal stem cell deficiency. In this instance, instead of a neat linear array of multi-colored spokes which typically develop in a normal cornea, a chaotic patchwork evolved eight weeks after injury. The image of the normal confetti cornea can be viewed here.
