Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is used to treat alkali-burned corneas. However, EGF-induced corneal angiogenesis, which is currently untreatable, is a side effect of this therapy. We therefore explored the role of the intermediate-conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) channel (KCa3.1) in EGF-induced angiogenesis
