The internal limiting membrane (ILM), or basal lamina, of the neural retina is located between the end feet of retinal Müller cells and the vitreous cortex. Recent studies of ILM substructure and histochemistry suggest that the ILM lamina rara externa, a region of the ILM likely to mediate vitreoretinal adhesion, is rich in noncollagen glycoconjugates. To characterize the spatial distribution and temporal expression of ILM glycoconjugates further, fetal and adult human retinas were examined… CONTINUE READING
