Formation of the ocular arteries in the chick embryo: observations of corrosion casts by scanning electron microscopy

Abstract

An investigation was carried out on the formation of the blood vessels that supply the optic cup or eyeball in developing chick embryos ranging in age from Hamburger-Hamilton stage 17 (st17) to st44. Corrosion casts of the vasculature were made by injecting resin and examined by scanning electron microscopy. The optic cup was supplied by branches of the… (More)
