A possible role for the vascular membrane in retinal regeneration in Rana catesbienna tadpoles.

We have studied the process of retinal regeneration in Rana catesbienna tadpoles using a recently developed monoclonal antibody (2D3) directed against frog neurons and germinitive neuroepithelium. We have found that, following retinal degeneration induced by devascularization, new retina is generated in the posterior eye from transdifferentiating pigment… (More)
