Abstract: The results indicate that cell association between non-mitotic RPE cells and previously cultured cells of many types increases the outgrowth of the RPE by accelerating the early stages of growth activation in vitro. Co-culture methods offer a practical means for increasing the likelihood of producing cultures from small RPE isolates. Further, should cells involved in proliferative pathologies in situ associate with non-mitotic RPE within the monolayer, the latter cells may also be activated, leading to an augm…
