Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Skull development in Gja1tm1Kdr/Gja1tm1Kdr embryos. A and B: Lateral view of the skull of alizarin red/alcian blue-stained E16.5 wild-type (WT) and Gja1tm1Kdr/Gja1tm1Kdr (Cx43(-/-)) embryos. C and D: Dorsal, E and F: ventral, and G and H: lateral views of the skull of alizarin red-stained E18.5 (C,E and G) wild-type and (D,F and H) mutant embryos. G and H: Lateral view on the skull at E18.5 shows the incipient mineralization of parietal, nasal, frontal and squamous parts of the temporal bones in mutant mice, though all these elements remain developmentally hypomineralized, especially around their rostral boundaries. F, frontal bone; P, parietal bone; S, squamous part of the temporal bone; I, interparietal bone; E, exoccipital bone; M, mandible; T, tympanic ring; PL, palatine bone; PT, pterygoid bone; BS, basisphenoid bone; AS, alisphnoid bone; and BO, basioccipital bone.
