Effects of Physical Factors on Retina Muller Cell (RMC)Retinal Muller cells (RMC) are the major glia cells in retina, they haveproperties of both astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, and are very important inmaintaining normal retinal function and structure such as to support neurons,form retinal -blood barrier, store and buffer K~+ and participate in neuronsynapse transduction.
Best-corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure, retinal thickness and FFA were observed.
At the early stages of retina development, the neuroepithelial cells divide synchronously, thus leading to the accumulation of a certain number of the retinal rudiment cells.
Synchronous divisions precede the asynchronous ones, when the differentiation of the retinal cells is initiated.
The multipotent cells of the retinal ciliary-terminal zone and cells of the pigment epithelium in the eye periphery provide for the growth of amphibian and fish eyes during the entire life of these animals.
The main event of retinal regeneration in newts is the transdifferentiation of the pigment epithelium cells.
