Fig. 5. Brat induces mesodermal tissues. (A) Control-injected animal
caps form solid balls of atypical epidermis. (B) At low doses, 50 pg,
Brat-injected animal caps form vesicles, characteristic of ventral
mesoderm. Caps in (A) and (B) were scored at stage 28.
(C-F) Whole-mount staining for muscle with the 12/101 antibody.
(C) Sibling stage 24 whole embryo. Muscle tissue is stained in the
segmented somites. (D) CS2-injected animal caps, 250 pg mRNA.
No muscle tissue formed, n=11. (E) Brat-injected animal caps, 500
pg mRNA. Muscle formed in 33% of the injected caps, n=27.
(F) BVg1-injected animal caps, 5 pg mRNA. Muscle staining is seen
in all caps, n=22.
