Preparation of tear glands in the laboratory
It should be noted that the formation of tears in the eyes and intermittent discharge is very important for our health as it protects our eyes from various diseases and also keeps the eyes clean.
The study, sponsored by The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in the Netherlands, was the first to identify genes in humans and mice using the latest genetic engineering technology, CRISPR. The glands that cause tears in the eyes are the most important.
Later, using each stem cell, that is, stem cells, specific tear-forming cells were created in the petri dish and successfully combined in the form of glands.
In the laboratory environment, these glands shed tears in the same way that tears come out of the natural eye.
These are currently the first experiments aimed at understanding the function of the tear-producing glands in the eye.
