Differential effects of aging on transport properties of anterior and posterior human sclera.
The transport properties and composition of 44 pairs of human sclera, 37-91 years were compared. Solute transport, diffusion and partition coefficients of posterior sclera for solutes ranging in mass from 0.023-70kDa were higher than those of anterior sclera; the posterior region was also more hydrated. The differences in partition coefficient between anterior and posterior sclera became more pronounced as solute molecular weight increased. Partition coefficients and hydration of both regions...Expand abstract
