We previously used a retroviral vector to mark clones in the postnatal rodent retina and showed that at least two types of neurons and Müller glia can arise from a common progenitor. Here we describe the use of exo utero surgery to introduce a marker retrovirus into the proliferative zone of the retinas of embryonic day 13 and 14 mice. Analysis of marked… CONTINUE READING
