During the embryonic development of the eye, a group of founder cells in the optic vesicle gives rise to multipotent progenitor cells that generate all the neurons and the Müller glia of the mature retina. In most vertebrates, a small group of retinal stem cells persists at the margin of the retina, near the junction with the ciliary epithelium. In fish and amphibians, the retinal stem cells continue to produce progenitors throughout life, adding new retina to the periphery of the existing… CONTINUE READING
