The conjunctiva is not maintained by LSCs. Whole-mount image showing the ocular surface of a female X-inactivation mosaic mouse. Stripes extend inwards from the edge of the limbus (A) to the corneal epithelium (B) and meet at the centre. There is no striping in any region of the conjunctival epithelium but mosaicism occurs as irregular-shaped patches (C).
