Development of microglia in the quail optic tectum.


The development of microglia in the quail optic tectum from embryonic day 6 to adulthood was studied by using the QH1 monoclonal antibody. In youngest tecta, microglial cells were scarcely present, but their number rose in subsequent stages. A clear pattern of microglial cell distribution was observable in embryos of 9-16 days. (1) Round cells appeared… (More)
