Abstract

The developmental distribution of vimentin was localized in chick retina using light and electromicroscopic immunohistochemical techniques. From embryonic day 4 (E4) to E8 vimentin was present in cells throughout the retina. By E10 vimentin immunoreactivity was restricted to Müller cells. In tissue culture of chick neural retina vimentin was found to be restricted to flat cells that are thought by others to be derived from Müller cells. Neurons in culture did not contain vimentin.
