Structure of human iPSC derived RGCs by light and electron microscopyWe investigated the structure of the RGCs by light and electron microscopy. Elite White Bobby Orr Jersey After the OV became attached around D26 29, it became complanate, filled with cells, and showed radiation of numerous axons from the outer margin at the Kid Reilly Smith Jersey dish surface. The cells in the clump were apparently different from those in the Kid Patrice Bergeron Jersey main body of the EB, which was filled with small round cells.

These findings were identical to those of RGCs in vivo, whose cell body sizes ranged from 12 to 25m51. Notably, several cells located peripheral to the structure had Nissl bodies (Fig. S7), which is considered characteristic of RGCs52. However, Nissl bodies were not detected in other types
