Fibroblasts invade the primary corneal stroma of the 6-day-old chick embryo eye. The way in which these cells build the secondary stroma has been studied by microscope examination of the stroma during the subsequent 8 Days. Eyes were embedded in low viscosity nitrocellulose, and 30-micrometer tangential sections of cornea were cut and stained with azan (giving blue collagen and red cells). These sections were sufficiently thick to include enough cells and collagen for stromal organization to be… CONTINUE READING
