They gradually increased in cell number and formed a distinct layer at the basal-most zone of the neural retina (Figures 4(b) and 4(d)).
Under the specific differentiation conditions, U-hiPSCs recapitulated all major steps of retinal development in vivo, from eye field, neural retina, and retinal pigment epithelium domains (optic vesicle stage) to 3D retinal organoids (optic cup stage) [29, 30].
The role of neural retina in lens regeneration from cornea in larval Xenopus laevis.
Retinal image processing, retinopathy detection software, and digital fundus photography have been employed most widely in the literature for detecting diabetic changes to the neural retina and are included where they have developed measures of diabetic retinal changes which are reported as preceding standard grades of diabetic retinopathy (such as vessel calibre changes, capillary density in perifoveal intercapillary space, and optic nerve head contour or shape).

To further reduce adverse effects on the neural retina, it was already suggested in the early 1990s [33, 34] that selective treatment of the RPE should be delivered carefully so as to avoid thermally damaging adjacent photoreceptors or the choroid.
These results show that TGF-[beta] stimulates TUBB3 expression by activating the MAPK/ERK signaling pathway and agree with published data on the involvement of the MAPK/ERK pathways in RPE transdifferentiation into the neural retina. In particular, it has been shown that the ectopic expression of a constitutively activated allele of MEK-1 ([MEK.sup.DD]), the immediate upstream activator of MAPK/ERK, in chicken embryonic retina in ovo induces transdifferentiation of the RPE into a neural-like epithelium, which is correlated with downregulation of MITF expression in the presumptive RPE [112].
STAT3 is expressed in the developing and adult RPE and neural retina [131].
It manifests in drusen formation and degeneration/atrophy of the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) and neural retina, as well as the formation of abnormal choroidal capillaries [2, 3].
However, it may be surprising to find that the transcriptional profiles of both datasets did not support the current classification of the AMDs phenotypes and that the neural retina is different from the RPE-choroid complex in their deregulated pathways.
This technique, since it allows the neural retina to be folded nasally offers a better visual operative field for the surgeon.
