     0 Introduction

     The lack of donor cornea limits the wide range of corneal

    transplants carried out, building engineering cornea donor cornea to replace the materials for clinical transplantation to provide more extensive material is the corneal tissue engineering research hot spots. How to construct tissue-

    engineered corneal stroma [1] is an important part. Stroma constitutes the main part of the cornea, accounting for 90% of corneal thickness, mainly by collagen fibers, corneal stromal cells and extracellular matrix composition. In lamellar keratoplasty in corneal stroma of the donor pathology played a

    major role in prognosis [2], and therefore in vitro-engineered

    corneal stroma has important clinical value.

Immunohistochemical results: positive for vimentin staining (Figure 1), negative keratin staining to prove that cellular contamination of non-epithelial cells, a single corneal

    stromal cells. Histological observation: rabbit corneal

    stromal cells showed spindle-shaped extension, in the

    acellular porcine corneal stroma in close quote attached to surface (Figure 2A). Scanning electron microscopy: rabbit corneal stromal cells were polygonal stretching acellular porcine corneal stroma in the material surface, adhesion of cells and materials, the close (Figure 2B).

     3 Discussion

     Construction of tissue-engineered corneal stroma the key to success is to apply an ideal carrier to grow as the extracellular matrix of corneal stromal cells to form a body

    similar to the normal structure. This vector should support cell growth, promote cell fusion, with good

    histocompatibility. Porcine and human corneal keratocytes similar structure, there is a complete extracellular matrix, basement membrane, Bowman layer and the substrate, there are a

    variety of growth factors, can induce regulate cell growth, reproduction, differentiation and proliferation. Studies have found that the immunogenicity of corneal stroma is very low, in the cell-mediated immunity, the corneal stroma accounts for

    only 1.62% [3]. Li et al [4] found that corneal and limbal epithelium, corneal fibroblasts existed between cytokine regulatory networks. Friend et al [5], Wu Jing et al [6], respectively, on porcine corneal stroma cultivated corneal epithelial cells in vitro to form a near-physiological

    conditions of the corneal epithelial tissue. Amano et al [7] In the porcine corneal matrix cultured human corneal endothelial cells and the transplant was successful. We found that acellular porcine corneal stroma material has a three-

    dimensional mesh-like structure, and good biocompatibility

    [8], but also a better therapeutic effect. Using it as stand inoculation, cultured rabbit corneal stromal cells built to contain cells in tissue engineering cornea by scanning

    electron microscopy found to contain cells, tissue engineering cornea with a three-dimensional mesh-like structure, similar

    to normal corneal architecture, may be provided to the cornea stromal cells with adequate nutrients and material exchange

    space, conducive to cell growth, proliferation and differentiation. Corneal stromal cells in acellular porcine corneal stroma material attached growing well. Observed under fluorescence microscope acellular porcine corneal stroma red fluorescent material attached to the rabbit corneal stromal cells, and further illustrates containing stromal cells, tissue-engineered corneal stromal cells contained some activity. Therefore, this experiment was successfully constructed in vitro tissue engineering of living cells

    containing the corneal stroma.
