Somatostatin (SOM) mRNA in developing ganglion cell layer (GCL) detected by in situ hybridization histochemistry and SOM peptide in developing optic chiasma and optic tract detected by immunocytochemistry were monitored to explore whether ganglion cells expressing SOM project to the visual center. Most of these cells in the developing GCL expressed SOM transiently from embryonic day 13 (E13) to E21. The cells expressing SOM mRNA initially followed a central-to-peripheral pattern of development… CONTINUE READING
