Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Transmission electron micrographs of the terminal air sacs of E18.5 wild-type and Fras1tm1Chpk/Fras1tm1Chpk lungs. A and B: Ultrastructural analysis of the interface between endothelial and type I pneumocytes. The basement membrane (demarcated by arrowheads) appears significantly wider and less dense in mutants (B) compared with wild-type (A). C: Detachment of an endothelial cell from a type I pneumocyte (arrowheads) in mutant lungs. D: Extravasated erythrocytes (arrowheads) are frequently encountered in variable numbers in the respiratory lumen of mutant lungs. Abbreviations: lu, respiratory lumen; n, endothelial cell nucleus; p, type I pneumocyte; ery, erythrocyte. Scale bar: A-C, 200 nm; D, 1 um.
