Phenotype Image Detail
Caption A-D: Histological analysis of cardiac valves. Shown are hematoxylin and eosin stained longitudinal sections of hearts of E17.5 embryos. Mice are wild-type (WT, A and C) and Hbegftm2Mek/Hbegftm2Mek (uc/uc, B and D). Pulmonic (A and B) and mitral valves (C and D) are indicated by asterisks. Aortic and tricuspid valves were also enlarged (not depicted). Bar, 150 um. E: Measurement of cardiac valve size. The largest diameters of each valve in serial sections of E17.5 embryos of wild-type (black dots, n=5) Hbegftm2Mek/Hbegf+ (blue dots, n=9) and homozygous mutant (red dots, n=4) hearts were measured. pv, pulmonic valve; av, aortic valve; tv, tricuspid valve; mv, mitral valve.
