Sažetak

The stem cells that provide tissue regeneration are residents of different organ structures in the body and are usually located in well-protected sites of organs and tissues. For stem cells of either corneal epithelium such sites are in the basal epithelial layer of the cornea residing in its limbal region, termed the palisade of Voight. The growing interest in allografts and xenografts implies a thorough study of the regenerative potential of these cells, as well as a clear description of their patterns in the in vitro tissue cultures to be grafted. The aim of this study was to evaluate the culturing patterns of porcine limbal stem cells and to optimize growing conditions of these cell cultures, in order to develop a reliable biomedical model intended for studying the potentials of allografts/xenografts originated from porcine tissues. Porcine stem cell equivalents have potential in reparative/regenerative veterinary medicine for pets, horses and selected breeds of food animals, but also as xenografts for humans.
