Figure 1. Differential effects of Ngn3-GR temporal activation. Whole mount in situ hybridization of Stage 44 whole guts from embryos injected with 1,800 pg of XenopusNgn3-GR mRNA at the eight-cell stage. (a,d,g) Control embryos injected with Ngn3-GR mRNA but not treated with dex. (b,e,h) Dex treatment from Stages 12 to 44. Increased expression of glucagon (n = 14/20), insulin (n = 23/23), and somatostatin (n = 10/10). Arrowheads indicate ectopic insulin expression in the liver, stomach, and duodenum. (c,f,i) Dex treatment for 4 h from Stages 12 to 15. Increased insulin (n = 55/55) and somatostatin (n = 22/22) but not glucagon (n = 24/24). (j,k) Schematics illustrating organs in the whole gut of panels a and b (blue-insulin). (l) Insulin expression was detected in rare instances (n = 2/50) in posterior areas of the intestine. Pa: pancreas.
