Optic cup develops into which among the following?
TIPSImportant Question from MCI 2012
The eye is derived from three of the primitive embryonic layers: surface ectoderm, including its derivative the neural crest; neural ectoderm; and mesoderm. The neural ectoderm gives rise to the optic vesicle and optic cup, and is thus responsible for the formation of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium.
- As the optic vesicle invaginates to produce the optic cup, the original outer wall of the vesicle approaches its inner wall.
- The outer layer of the optic cup remains as a single layer and becomes the pigment epithelium of the retina.
- The inner layer of the optic cup undergoes a complicated differentiation into the other nine layers of the retina.
