Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Skin histology. H&E-stained longitudinal sections of tail (A-I) and dorsal (J-M) skin of transgenic (C-I, L, and M) and wild-type (A, B, J, and K) mice; tail skin from 7-week- (A, C, and G), 14-week- (D and H), 6-month- (E), and 10-month-old (F and I) transgenic and wild-type mice. Note, in tail, the hyperplasia in scale epidermis (C-F, H, and I), the papillary structure (D-F, H, and I), the intradermal epithelial invagination with horn perls (I), the sebaceous gland hyperplasia (E and F), the loss of cell polarity in the basal layer (G and H), and the irregular orientation of epidermal cells (G and H). Cryosections of dorsal skin from 9-day-old wild-type (J and K) and transgenic mice (L and M). Note, in transgenic skin, the reduced hair follicle density, the retarded formation, and emergence of hair shafts, and inappropriate orientation (90 angle) of hair follicles (L), and delayed thinning of interfollicular epidermis (M). Magnification: A - F, J & L: X160; H & I: X400; G: X630
