A discrete group of melanin containing cells are coincident with a major reorganization of retinal ganglion cell axons in the optic nerve of Xenopus.

Abstract:

Further investigations into the abrupt reorganization of axons in the proximal optic nerve of the frog Xenopus are presented. This reorganization reverses the radial, age-related organization of the projection. At the site of axon divergence a discrete group of melanin-producing astrocytes occurs, which are coincident with the reorganization. These cells are identified as astrocytes by their ultrastructure, and by staining in vitro with an antibody to glial fibrillary acidic protein. In an at...
