Here is a selection of publications where different laminin isoforms were used to create more authentic cell culture systems.

Abnormal adhesion of grafted corneal endothelial cells (CECs) affects the application of intracameral injection for corneal endothelial dysfunction therapy. The authors explored whether laminin 511 (LN511) improves the therapeutic function of the intracameral CEC injection. Injected LN511 was found to be able to settle and form a coating on the posterior surface of Descemet's membrane (DM). The data suggests that the strategy of LN511 precoating and CECs' intracameral injection could be a potential method for the therapy of corneal endothelial dysfunction.
