Figure 3. Properties of the Type of Constructs Used in This Study
(A and B) Embryos transgenic for a myc-tagged protein under the control of the HSP70 promoter were either heat-shocked at stage 14 (B) or not (A), and the expression was visualized by immunostaining (dark blue).
(C and D) Tadpoles transgenic for GFP under the control of the HSP70 promoter were heat-shocked (D) or not (C), and expression was viewed by fluorescence.
(E and F) Embryos heat-shocked at stage 14 develop normally in the absence of the HSP70-Noggin-γCrys-GFP transgene, whereas their transgenic siblings develop multiple defects consistent with BMP inhibition.
Note the GFP expression in the lenses of the eyes in transgenics.
(G) Transgene constructs used in this study.
