Zebrafish lens cross section
The diagram above shows a cross section of the zebrafish lens. Lens epithelium covers the anterior half of lens fiber core and ends at the peripheral zone which is roughly at the equator of the lens. At this boundary cell proliferation gives way to differentiation, where lens epithelial cells turn into lens fiber cells.
