Activated Müller Glia

Friend of Webvision, Peter Westenskow in the Friedlander Laboratory sent us this beautiful image of activated Müller glia in a stressed mouse eye.  You can see the scar in the photoreceptor layer towards the top of the image.  The mouse line is VLDLR -/-.  These mice exhibit aberrant neovascular tufts that invade the ONL and eventually grow into the RPE cells.  The red staining is pan-cadherin.
