Fig. 4. Sections of embryos processed for whole-mount in situ
hybridization using a probe specific for Xom. (A) Section of stage-
10.5 embryo. Transcripts are absent from the organizer, but are
present in ventral and lateral regions of the embryo in all three germ
layers. The punctate staining in vegetal tissue may be due to poor
probe penetration into this yolky tissue. (B) Section of a stage-19
embryo at the level of the head. Transcripts are present in the
presumptive eye. (C) Section of the embryo shown in B in the trunk
region. Staining is visible in all three germ layers of the ventral and
lateral regions of the embryo, and in the dorsal cells of the roof plate
of the neural tube. Bars, in A and B are 50 mm; in C is 100 mm.
