Collective epithelial migration drives timely morphogenesis of the retinal neuroepithelium
TLDR
It is shown that, surprisingly, active collective epithelial migration of cells at the rim of the cup is the most prominent player in RNE formation.
Spatial distribution and characterization of non-apical progenitors in the zebrafish embryo central nervous system
TLDR
This work suggests that the majority of spinal NAPs in zebrafish share characteristics with basal progenitors in mammalian brains, and cellular and molecular characteristics and renewal capacity are determined.
Photoreceptor progenitor dynamics in the zebrafish embryo retina and its modulation by primary cilia and N-cadherin
TLDR
A complex regulation of photoreceptor progenitor dynamics to form the retinal ONL is indicated, previous to the post-mitotic maturation stages of zebrafish embryos.
Uncoupling of neurogenesis and differentiation during retinal development
TLDR
It is proposed that the uncoupling of neurogenesis and differentiation could provide neurogenic programs with flexibility, while allowing for synchronous neuronal development within a continuously expanding cell pool.
Timing and Distribution of Mitotic Activity in the Retina During Precocial and Altricial Modes of Avian Development
TLDR
The results suggest that retinal neurogenesis is active at the hatching stage in T. guttata, and that horizontal cell differentiation is delayed in the altricial bird species compared to the precocial one.
penner/lgl2 is required for the integrity of the photoreceptor layer in the zebrafish retina
ABSTRACT The vertebrate retina is a complex tissue built from multiple neuronal cell types, which develop from a pseudostratified neuroepithelium. These cells are arranged into a highly organized and
Culture of Adult Transgenic Zebrafish Retinal Explants for Live-cell Imaging by Multiphoton Microscopy.
TLDR
Conditions to study the dynamics of INM in an adult model of neuronal regeneration are established, which will advance the understanding of this crucial cellular process and allow us to determine the mechanisms that control INM.
Stochastic Single Cell Behaviour Leads to Robust Horizontal Cell Layer Formation in the Vertebrate Retina
TLDR
Using in vivo light sheet imaging of the developing zebrafish retina, a comprehensive quantitative analysis of horizontal single cell behaviour from birth to final positioning shows that lamination of the vertebrate retina contains a yet underexplored extent of single cell stochasticity.
Interkinetic Nuclear Migration in the Regenerating Retina.
TLDR
The evidence for INM in the regenerating retina is summarized and mechanisms that control INM during neuro-epithelial development in the context of pathways known to be critical during retinal regeneration are reviewed.

Influences on neural lineage and mode of division in the zebrafish retina in vivo
TLDR
Three-dimensional time-lapse analyses were used to trace lineages of retinal progenitors expressing green fluorescent protein under the control of the ath5 promoter and provide the first insight into reproducible lineage patterns of Retinal prognitors in vivo and the first evidence that environmental signals influence the orientation of cell division and the lineage of neural progenitor.
Reconstruction of rat retinal progenitor cell lineages in vitro reveals a surprising degree of stochasticity in cell fate decisions
TLDR
The results support the notion that stochasticity has a major role during retinal development and therefore possibly in other parts of the central nervous system.
From progenitors to differentiated cells in the vertebrate retina.
TLDR
How extracellular and intracellular signaling, transcriptional regulation, cell cycle kinetics, interkinetic nuclear migration, orientation of cell division, and epigenetic modifications all interact to regulate a progenitor's transition from division to differentiation is discussed.
Origin and Determination of Inhibitory Cell Lineages in the Vertebrate Retina
TLDR
It is shown that specific types of inhibitory neurons arise from the cell-autonomous influence of PTF1a in the daughters of fate-restricted progenitors, such as Ath5 or Vsx1/2-expressing progenitor, and that in the absence of Ptf1a, cells that would have become these specific inhibitory subtypes revert to the histogenetically appropriate excitatory subtypes of the same lineage.
Retinal neurogenesis: the formation of the initial central patch of postmitotic cells.
TLDR
The formation of this central patch, previously considered as the start of retinal neurogenesis, was actually a secondary event, with a developmental history of its own, which indicates that cell birthday and cell fate were correlated within a column.
