The surface morphology of lens fibers in embryonic and adult chicken lenses has been studied by scanning electron microscopy. As the elongating epithelial cells enter into a state of terminal differentiation they elaborate a number of cellular processes interconnecting neighboring fibers. The interlocking devices take the shapes of balls on a short stalk, tonguelike flaps, and fingerlike processes that fit into complementarily shaped sockets, imprints, and fingerprints, respectively, of… CONTINUE READING
