In an attempt to clarify the relationship between the presence of retinal cell death and the invagination of the optic vesicle, we have tested the occurrence and cytological characteristics of the retinal necrotic areas in the embryonic chicken after the administration in ovo of papaverine. Papaverine, a Ca2+ antagonist, was found to prevent the… CONTINUE READING
