Immunofluorescence studies on induction and differentiation of the chicken eye lens.


The synthesis of crystallins was studied in chicken embryos of 48 hours up to 8 days of incubation, by means of the indirect fluorescent antibody technique. The first positive reactions were observed in 23 somite embryos (50 to 53 hours of incubation). A few cells in the morphologically most advanced area of the lens placode showed fluorescence.
