Abstract

In the last few years, a number of investigations on monolayer cell cultures derived from isolated trabecular meshwork have been carried out (Rohen et al. 1976, 1978; Schachtschabel et al. 1977,1982a, b; Grierson et al. 1980; Polansky et al. 1978,1981; Alvarado et al. 1979). Since the explanted tissue pieces used for cell and tissue culture studies are composed of several cell types, the question arises as to whether those cells which later form the monolayer cultures are in fact derived from the cells covering the trabecular beams, or whether they grow out of other parts of the explanted tissue.
