Monocytes of bone marrow (BM) origin are circulating precursors that replenish dendritic cells and macrophage populations in peripheral tissues during homeostasis. The eye provides a unique range of varying tissue microenvironments in which to compare the different turnover rates of monocyte-derived cells. This was investigated in the present study using radiation chimeras, whereby BM from Cx3cr1(+/gfp) mice was used to rescue myeloablated wild-type (WT) BALB/c mice (conventional chimeras).
