Abstract

Lineage tracing can provide key insights into the development of tissues, such as the retina. Yet it is not possible to manipulate human cells during embryogenesis. The authors observed a distinct phenotype in female carriers of X-linked disorders, in particular, carriers of choroideremia caused by mutations in CHM, encoding Rab escort protein-1. The authors found that X chromosome inactivation provides a method for retinal lineage tracing in human patients. Live imaging of female carriers displays a developmental pattern that is different within the peripheral retina compared with the posterior retina and provides important insights into the development and migration of retinal cells.
