Glial cells in the CNS of vertebrates serve specialized functions in close interaction with surrounding neurons and blood vessels. In the avian eye, the neural tissue (retina) and the supporting vascular structure (pecten oculi) are spatially separated and comprise distinct glial cell types, i.e., the Müller glia and the pecteneal glia, respectively. In the present study we combined morphological and immunocytochemical investigations on the differentiation of the pecteneal glia in comparison to… CONTINUE READING
