Control of photoreceptor development.

Recent studies of cell type determination in the vertebrate retina suggest that rod photoreceptor development involves interactions among cells that are mediated, at least in part, by temporally regulated diffusible signals. In this review the strategies used to generate rods in the vertebrate retina are compared with those described for photoreceptor development in the Drosophila retina.
