Very little is known about the structure and development of the ciliary processes in the mouse eye. Our scanning electron microscope (SEM) studies reveal that, unlike other mammals, the ciliary processes form an irregular pattern, crossing over and interweaving rather than lying parallel to one another. Histological and SEM studies from embryonic day (E) 14.5 to postnatal day (P) 7 reveal that the first morphological sign of the ciliary zone is an annular bulge; this is then gradually molded to… CONTINUE READING
