FIG.2.Nonmuscle cardiac development in Xenopus. Images representthecardiac regions of embryos (stage 27 and stage 35) immunostained with anti-fibrillin (JB3). The secondary antibody was conjugated to Alexa 568. Ventral views of the heart regions of embryos are presented with the anterior of the embryo at the top. The stage 27 (A) and stage 35 (B) images were form ed by the digital merging of 28 and 36 optical sections 4 and 5 um apart, respectively (taken in gray scale), and digitally colored. At stage 27, the endocardial tube is not completely formed. The unlabeled arrowheads point to unpartitioned secreted material at the embryos midline. By stage 35 (B), a single heart tube has formed into a S shape; the sinus venosus is paired. Scale bar, 100um.
