Two vascular networks nourish the embryonic eye as it develops - the hyaloid vasculature, located at the anterior of the eye between the retina and lens, and the choroidal vasculature, located at the posterior of the eye, surrounding the optic cup. Little is known about hyaloid development and morphogenesis, however. To begin to identify the morphogenetic(More)
Lens fiber formation and morphogenesis requires a precise orchestration of cell- extracellular matrix (ECM) and cell-cell adhesive changes in order for a lens epithelial cell to adopt a lens fiber fate, morphology, and migratory ability. The cell-ECM interactions that mediate these processes are largely unknown, and here we demonstrate that fibronectin1(More)
