Table 2 Random numbers of retinal vessels branch from the optic disc. The number and patterning of the retinal vessels was examined in 150 retinas from ~100 adult wild type zebrafish. Most of the retinas (64%) exhibit 6 or 7 main branches radiating from the optic disc, although the number of vessels varies from 4 to 9. In some individuals (n = 21), the retina from the left eye was compared to the retina from the right, showing no apparent correlation between anatomical location and the number of main branches.

Number of branches 4 5 6 7 8 9
Retinas (n = 150) 7% 23% 39% 25% 5% 1%
Left retinas (n = 21) 10% 33% 23% 29% 0% 5%
Right retinas (n = 21) 0% 38% 38% 14% 10% 0%
