The adult mammalian retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is mitotically inactive, yet retains the capacity to proliferate under certain conditions. To determine the onset of RPE proliferation after retinal detachment, we examined experimentally detached cat retinas of 12, 24, 48, and 72 hr duration. An additional animal served as a nondetached, sham-operated control. 3H-thymidine was injected into the vitreous chamber and the eyes were processed for light microscopic autoradiography. Autoradiograms… CONTINUE READING
