The distribution of fibronectin in the chorioretinal interface of the monkey eye was studied by indirect immunofluorescent and immunoelectron microscopic techniques. Immunofluorescent staining revealed fibronectin in Bruch's membrane and the choriocapillaris. Immunoelectron microscopic techniques revealed fibronectin associated with basement membranes, collagen fibers and elastic fibers in Bruch's membrane; the stromal side of the basement membrane of the choriocapillaris also showed staining. This study thus demonstrates that fibronectin is an integral component of Bruch's membrane in the monkey eye.
