Assay type: RNA in situ
MGI Accession ID: MGI:6512401
Gene symbol: Cers4
Gene name: ceramide synthase 4
Probe: Cers4 probe1
Probe preparation: Antisense RNA labelled with digoxigenin
Visualized with: Alkaline phosphatase
Specimen 5E +/+: postnatal (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS28: sebaceous gland Present 5E +/+ Specific expression in sebaceous glands.
TS28: back skin Present Regionally restricted 5E +/+ Expression undetectable in keratinocytes.

Specimen 5E -/-: postnatal; Fa2htm1Meck/Fa2htm1Meck (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS28: sebaceous gland Strong 5E -/- Expression strongly increased in mutant, apparently due to sebaceous gland enlargement.
