Fig. 1. Ectopic axis induction by FoxD3. (A) Control. At the four-cell stage a single ventral blastomere was injected with FoxD3 RNA (100 or 300 pg). Ectopic anterior axial structures, including ectopic eyes, were induced at the high dose (B) and ectopic tails were induced at the low dose (C). Embryos were analyzed at stage 35 by serial-section immunocytochemistry to detect muscle (12/101) (D), notochord (Tor70) (E) and neural tube (4d) (F) (transverse sections, dorsal up; arrowheads indicate stained tissues). Embryos were also analyzed at the early gastrula stage (stage 10.25) by whole-mount in situ hybridization for the expression of Goosecoid (G,H). FoxD3 induced ectopic Goosecoid expression (H) (vegetal views, dorsal up; arrowheads indicate dorsal blastopore lip and arrows indicate region of ectopic gene expression).
When using the Xenbase gene expression search we felt it would be most valuable if high quality images appeared near the top of your search results. That is why we have developed a way to allow Xenbase users to vote on the quality of an image. You can change your vote for a given image as many times as you want, but only your last vote is counted. Additionally,we've provided a comment box if you want to tell us why you think a specific image is good or bad.
As you can see above, this information box will tell you how people have voted on the image you are currently looking at. It is important to note that all of your votes are completely anonymous.
