Hyalocyte origin, structure, and imaging

Peter Wieghofer, Michael Engelbert, Toco YP Chui, Richard B Rosen, Taiji Sakamoto & J Sebag
Hyalocytes have been recognized as resident tissue macrophages of the vitreous body since the mid-19th century. Despite this, knowledge about their origin, turnover, and dynamics is limited. Historically, initial studies on the origin of hyalocytes used light and electron microscopies. Modern investigations across species including rodents and humans will be described. Novel imaging is now available to study human hyalocytes in vivo. The shared ontogeny with retinal microglia and their eventual interdependence as well as...
