Central-to-peripheral migration of QH1-positive microglial precursors occurs in the vitrealmost part of the developing quail retina. This study shows that some QH1-positive ameboid cells with morphological features of migrating cells are already present in the margin of the retina before microglial precursors migrating centrally to peripherally arrive in this zone. Because the earlier cells are oriented parallel to the ora serrata, we deduce that some microglial cells migrate circumferentially… CONTINUE READING
