Vertebrate eye development

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 1992 Aug;2(4):582-8. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(05)80176-5.


Vertebrate eye determination is mediated by a series of inductive interactions that have now been more precisely defined with the use of regional markers. Analyses of the genes responsible for eye mutations and the cloning of genes delimiting spatial domains within the developing eye have begun to elucidate the molecular basis of this process.
