A cluster of nascent retinae generated from 3-D embryonic stem cell cultures. The retinae contain photoreceptor precursors that express normal photoreceptor proteins, including the visual pigment, Rhodopsin (green) and the phototransduction enzyme, Recoverin (red). The precursors from such retinae can be isolated and transplanted into adult mice.
