Bilateral shortening of the ventral retin a and persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous in a mouse lacking retinoic acid receptors b and g. These effects exemplify the role o f retinoic acid in eye development and evolution. For details see "Role of the retinoic acid re ceptor beta (RARb) during mouse development" by N.B. Ghyselinck et al. in this issue.
