OBO ID: ZFA:0001679
Term Name: solid lens vesicle Search Ontology:
  • immature lens
  • lens mass
  • lens vesicle
  • presumptive lens
Definition: Portion of tissue that gives rise to the lens. The lens of the zebrafish forms by delamination of lens placodal cells and not through invagination. This results in a solid spherical mass as opposed to a hollow lens vesicle. Detachment of the solid lens vesicle of zebrafish at 24-26 hpf is accomplished in part by apoptosis, similar to mammals.
