Endothelial cell proliferation in the choriocapillaris during human retinal differentiation

Allende, A; Madigan, Michelle; Provis, Jan


Background: Differentiation patterns of the neural retina and its retinal vasculature are not well matched. The foveal region differentiates first, however the central retina is not vascularised until late in gestation. The authors explored the hypothesis that higher rates of endothelial cell proliferation in the choriocapillaris of the central retina might compensate for the slow growth of central retinal vessels, providing supplementary nutrients to the region during the early stages of...[Show more]
