Asymmetric retinal growth: evidence for regulation by a retinotopic mechanism.

Adult teleost retinas grow throughout life, in part by the addition of cells from an encircling, proliferative neuroepithelium. In some species, this proliferative growth is asymmetric around the retina. The present study evaluated two hypotheses regarding asymmetric proliferative growth in adult green sunfish retina: (1) the generation of rod… CONTINUE READING
