How is prenatal retina progenitor cell fate aFected by diFerent surrounding cell populations? Progenitor cells Explant with extract culture Dissociate and reaggregate culture Low density culture E16 explant Assay for cell type Which retinal cell types do the progenitor cells ultimately become? Three types of culture preparation methods: 1. Dissociate and reaggregate with retinal postnatal cells 2. Explant to culture with postnatal retinal extract 3. Put progenitor cells into low density culture before mixing with postnatal cells.
