Ocular Surface Development and Gene Expression

Figure 2

Mouse corneal development. Major events in mouse corneal development between embryonic day 8 (E8) and postnatal day 56 (PN56) are shown. Corneal epithelium and lens are derived from the head surface ectoderm (shown in green), while the corneal stroma and endothelium originate from the neural crest-derived mesenchymal cells.
