A model showing how microglial precursors colonize the developing zebrafish retina. As can be seen, the microglial precursors use the blood vessels to enter the optic cup and then disperse to areas undergoing neurogenesis. This image appeared in the press release “From blood vessels as pathways to neurons as gatekeepers: Journey of immune cells in developing zebrafish revealed”.
